AFL-CIO warns airline merger could cause union fallout

A major labor leader is worried a merger between US Airways and American Airlines could cause a battle between two unions that represent ground workers. 

US Airways and American’s ground workers are represented by two different unions.

AFL-CIO president Richard Trumka said instead of fighting for control, the two unions should share representation and focus on organizing non-union workers.
