Although it is hardly publicized, something remarkable is happening to organized labor. Key players in the United States and abroad are busy modernizing their communications and making creative and effective use of computers and other technology. Drawing on infotech devices (computer networks, the Internet, video conferencing, fax machines, wireless communication, and multi-media), labor struggles to renew its voice and ears, and, in the process, new hope has been stirred that this just might help to transform its organizational culture, refine its focus, and re-invent its mission

The author believes the road to CyberUnion (the combination of four strategic reform aids--futuristics, innovations, services, and traditions--knit together with infotech resources) has already begun and those unions already embracing this model are ensuring a position of strength in the 21st century. CyberUnion is a bold plan for organized labor to remain strong for many decades to come, and it examines the components of the model, progress already made, and plans to ensure continued success.
