Whither the US labor movement?

For those of you not in the know (probably about 90% of the population of the US), there is a massive debate going on in the labor movement right now about labor’s future. There are many union leaders who feel that to continue in our current vein is to invite a world in which no US workers are represented by unions. Chief among those is Andy Stern, president of the Service Employees’ International Union, the largest union in the AFL-CIO right now.

Are you a union member? If not, why not? If so, what do you think about this and other proposals made to reform the labor movement?
