As the aerospace industry in Southern California shrinks dramatically, the divisions in the United Auto Workers over how to answer the challenge only get uglier and deeper. UAW Local 148, which represents more than 19,000 Douglas Aircraft workers in Long Beach, is seeking to oust the union's regional director, Bruce Lee, from current contract talks.

The young man said it seemed only natural to join a neighborhood gang along with many of his friends. His father was a gang member, and so was his grandfather. "We all try to take care of each other, watch everybody's back," the youth said in a recent interview at a Norwalk park. He asked that his name not be used. Gangs have been a part of Norwalk for generations. But they have come under increased scrutiny from law enforcement officials and community leaders because of the May 9 shooting death of a high school football star, a gang-related shoot-out that left two wounded on May 28, and other recent incidents.

"I have been through a life-changing event. You have to remember. " Rios' workouts were far different early this year, and the view he had was looking down from the medical center to the practice field.

Even in the wake of the strike authorization vote earlier this month, union leaders said they had no intention of going on strike. "All we want to do is go back to the bargaining table," United Aerospace Workers Local 148 President Richard Rios said in Long Beach.
