Posted Tuesday, October 24, 2006

Health care coverage. Improved wages. Better working conditions. Sound like the battle cries of the old labor unions? Guess what - it's the cry of the new ones as well. In town this week to talk up those issues and more is the dynamic leader of what's now called North America's largest union - the Service Employees International. Old school? Not exactly. This leader is telling people that unions must change to win. But will change come easy in hard-boiled Northeast Ohio? Tune in for Andy Stern's new vision Tuesday morning at nine on The Sound of Ideas.
