Elliot Bredhoff (1921-2004)

The eminent union lawyer Elliot Bredhoff died this week -- one of the first generation of CIO lawyers, one of the architects of the "Steelworkers Trilogy" that established labor arbitration, and a tireless advocate for unions and their members.

It's hard not to be grumpy this week, so let me just say that he was a blue-state guy who helped a lot of people.
