How can unions shape the U.S. economy? On the next Your Call, we’ll continue our series Agenda for a New Economy by looking at the state of labor unions today. Andy Stern, the controversial head of the Service Employees International Union who challenged the leadership of the AFL-CIO, is stepping down. Did Stern’s emphasis on national political clout and aggressive grassroots organizing make a difference?

Guests:

Bill Fletcher – Labor organizer and author of Solidarity Divided: The Crisis in Organized Labor and A New Path Toward Social Justice.

John Logan – Researcher for UC Berkeley Labor Center and Director of Labor Studies at SF State University.

Dave Regan – An Executive Vice President at SEIU and SEIU-UHW trustee.

Your Call is a daily call-in show on KALW 91.7 FM in San Francisco and 88.9 FM in Santa Cruz. It airs weekdays from 11am – noon PST.
