AFL-CIO lists companies as being against unions

The AFL-CIO named a ''dishonor roll'' of five corporations it accused of anti-union activity: Litton Industries, Procter & Gamble, Faberge, Capital Cities Communications, and Indiana Desk Company.

The department said it picked the five because each has demonstrated a clear corporate determination to break the unions that represent their workers.
