This is payback time for AMFA. That's the way the labor movement is looking at it, ... Raiding is a sin, and they believe AMFA raided and won by saying it would never accept concessions. It'll be much easier for other unions to tell members that they must accept concessions if AMFA was killed for not doing it.
I think it (the AFL-CIO) will survive as long as it has key unions still in it like Steelworkers and Auto Workers and especially the Communication Workers, ... But it's going to be a loss for the AFL-CIO in terms of income. It's not going to be effective in terms of political activity for quite a while.
