  • Labor unions are in an important time of change. As memberships decline, a new organization, called Change to Win, has broken from the AFL-CIO in an attempt to organize new members. This thesis follows this new push to unionize more workplaces. It also examines the legal barriers that thwart organizing drives and new attempts to reform those laws. Finally, it describes the internal battle over forging a cohesive immigration policy. The goal is to explore the new surge in organizing, while also recognizing the internal and external problems that still plague the American union movement.
