    Sadly, the AFL-CIO, but esp the older AFL, has a long long history of support for "union scabbing" ie allowing one union to scab on another, a shameful practice.

      At least as well as I can, don't claim to totally understand everything that is going on with the split, but will at least post the ILWU's letter to Brother Trumka and try to find a response from Trumka.
