The Break-up of Labor

Well, it's happened.  At least four big unions, led by the SEIU, are not going to attend the big summer Labor Meeting in Chicago tomorrow.  I'm sure there will be a lot written about it.  Chris Bowers has two pieces on it at mmdd.com, one from today with the news, the other from last week looking at the possibility. 

This is going to be momentous and it's going to effect the entire progressive movement.  It's just not clear in what direction. 

TPMCafe also has a "House of Labor" section up for folks to discuss many different aspects of what goes on with the Labor Movement.  It's hot today.
