Reagan, AFL-CIO brass to sit down for talks

President Reagan will meet with the AFL-CIO leadership at the White House Tuesday, hoping to bridge the gap in communications - if not in economic policies - between them.

But improved relations are possible, say several members of the federation's Executive Council who will attend the meeting, if the White House agrees to reemploy some of the 11,500 air traffic controllers who struck illegally earlier this year.
