David Bacon on Labor:
On this week’s Labor Report, on KPFA’s Morning Show, hosts David
Bacon and Philip Maldari interview Andy Stern, President of the
Service Employees International Union.

How can the US labor movement stop the decline in the percentage of
unionized workers and regain political power? How should labor deal
with the most important political issues of the day, from war to
immigration to health care? Can unions and community organizations
stand up to the Bush offensive in his second term?

These questions and more are part of a series of interviews on the
Labor Report about proposals for a new direction for the AFL-CIO, and
the US labor movement. On previous segments, KPFA featured
interviews with John Dalrymple, former executive secretary of the
Contra Costa County Central Labor Council, and Steve Early, New
England Organizing Coordinator for the Communications Workers of
America. More perspectives are coming.
