Hoffa, the tough little giant of the labor woiid, is looking toward a rtew try at bringing his Teamsters Union back into the fold of the AFL-CIO next month. But labor sources say his chances this year remain about the same as they have been since the Teamsters were ousted from the AFL-CIO on corruption charges in 1957—zero.
