This letter to AFL-CIO president John Sweeney offers some very good ideas. You'd think this would be an easy sell for Sweeney, considering that he did appear in Madison with about 2000 pals. Others tell me not to get my hopes up.
Even if nothing materializes in the immediate from AFL-CIO brass, it would be great if other labor organizers start working on establishing a funding infrastructure for some independent media efforts. A little money can go a long way. To get the ball rolling, I can suggest a few worthy media projects.
CMA website alert: There'll be some website infrastructure changes made to the website in the coming weeks.
