[Excerpt] Fourteen years after the military coup the Chilean people are still seeking the road back to democracy. Yet finding that road requires a strong, democratic, united labor movement voicing the aspirations of working people. To achieve that goal Chilean labor leaders have to resolve important tensions in the unions' relationship to political parties, the role of union officials who are also committed political partisans and the balance between political and economic demands.
