MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 19,1988 BLTTHEVILLE (ARK.) SOURISH OT5WS Finding Good Name Is One Of AFL-CIO Merger Problems By JAMES MARLOW Associated Press News Analyst WASHINGTON (AP) — Finding a name that's 'easy to say, and easy to fit into headlines, \yill be only one of the minor problems of the AFL and CIO after they merge in one big union next December. Although they will be working together in the new organization, the leaders of the American Federation of Labor and the Congress of Industrial Organizations didn't want to give up their individual identities. ' So, apparently without losing* ~ much sleep over it, they agreed on I f. compromise. They will start out under this name: the American Federation of Labor and the Congress of Industrial Organizations. That's a big mouthful to carry around very long. The labor bosses probably Will agree later on something shorter for the outfit which puts under one tent 10 million AFL members and five million unionists ot the CIO. The first major problem of the two groups when they sit down together will be to get along together. In spite of the present air of harmony, hard feelings run deep among the heads of the same unions which will be in the new AFL-CIO. Raiding A I'rubleni For one thing, there's the problem of trying to keep them from raiding one another's unions for members. For the s^.ke of labor unity, Walter Reuiher, president of the CIO. agreed that George Meany, president of the AFL. should be president of the new giant of Ameriaan labor. The ruling body, with plenty of power written into the proposed constitution, will be the Executive Council, made up of the president. Mesny. a secretary-treasurer, and 2" vice presidents from member unions. Starting out. at least, the CIO will be in a minority. There will be only 10 CIO people on the 29- man council. This council has a big \ stick: It can investigate and sus- \ pend member unions for what it" considers misconduct. 3 Times A Year Since this council win meet only three times a year, perhaps the real power will turn out to be in the hands of an executive committee which will meet every two f months and can get a lot of work j done faster than the 29-man council.
