Money for Nothing

Latest updates

pennliveSince 2012, SEIU has spent about $70 million on the Fight for $15 campaign, but it has lost over 30,000 members.

The Service Employees International Union (SEIU) has been pulling the strings for a $15 minimum wage from the start. According to the SEIU’s federal filings with the Department of Labor (DOL) released at the end of March, the labor union spent roughly $20 million on the Fight for $15 in 2015.

That brings the estimated total up to around $70 million since the campaign began in 2012…

Since the Fight for $15 was launched in 2012, the SEIU has not recruited a substantial number of fast-food workers. In fact, the union has lost almost 34,000 members since 2012.

Union Mismanagement

Misleading

Dirty tactics

the daily callerSEIU distributed misleading flyers in Nevada that encouraged people to support Hillary Clinton. The flyers mentioned she had “spoken out in support of the movement for $15 and a union,” but they neglected to mention that she does not support a $15 national minimum wage.

A major Nevada union has been distributing misleading flyers that state Democratic presidential candidate and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton supports the $15 minimum wage, according to reports Saturday.

The Service Employees International Union (SEIU) has been one of the main advocates for the $15 minimum wage. Despite its support for the policy, the union decided to endorse Clinton, who argues the federal minimum wage should not exceed $12 an hour. SEIU Nevada left out her opposition to the national $15 minimum wage when it distributed flyers touting her support.

“Hillary Clinton will fight, deliver and win a better future for working families,” stated the flyer, first reported on by Politico. “Clinton has spoken out in support of the movement for $15 and a union.”

The flyer includes a number of select quotes showcasing how Clinton has been an advocate for the policy. It leaves out that she actually is opposed to the national minimum wage exceeding $12 an hour. She only supports states and cities going as high as $15 if they so choose. Her primary rival Sen. Bernie Sanders, however, has been vocally supportive of a $15 national minimum wage.

becker's hospital reviewSEIU filed a complaint with the National Labor Relations Board to enforce an agreement that was not finalized.

In a complaint filed with the NLRB, the union claimed it reached an agreement with Prime in November 2014 on all of the substantive and material terms of a collective bargaining agreement for 1,100 employees at Encino (Calif.) Hospital Medical Center, Centinela Hospital Medical Center in Inglewood, Calif., and Garden Grove (Calif.) Hospital Medical Center. After terms of the deal were set, Prime failed to execute the collective bargaining agreement, according to SEIU-UHW.

Prime disputed the union’s claims and argued the parties never agreed on the material terms of the collective bargaining agreement and execution of an agreement was contingent on certain factors that were not met…

The hospital network maintains that the parties never reached an agreement. “In fact, the evidence before the administrative law judge included an e-mail from the union’s chief negotiator stating that the parties had never finalized the agreement,” said Ms. [Elizabeth] Nikels [spokeswoman for Prime].

The High Cost of SEIU’s Pipe Dream

Latest updates

inside higher edA study by two professors from Georgetown University and George Mason University shows that if adjunct professors were paid the $15,000 per class that SEIU wants, it would cost $19 billion. Of course, much of that increased cost would be passed on to students, parents, and taxpayers.

The paper references Service Employees International Union’saspirational proposal that adjuncts be paid $15,000 per course (including benefits), estimating that would cost universities $19 billion more annually.

Putting the estimated cost increases into perspective, the authors say it’s “far from obvious” whether universities would be able to afford such a change. According to U.S. Department of Education data from 2013, public and private colleges and universities spent $477 billion on all expenses. About $139 billion went to instruction, with about $100 billion spent on faculty salary, wages and benefits…

The authors say that increasing pay and benefits and otherwise improving working conditions for faculty would attract “more and better” candidates to such positions, “many of whom will outcompete current adjuncts for their jobs.”

Again referencing the SEIU proposal, the paper says that at four courses each in the spring and fall, “this is $120,000 in pay for nine to 10 months of relatively fun work, with summers and winters off.”

Brennan and Magness argue that any attempt to give adjuncts a better job is also likely to affect course offerings, “possibly to the detriment of its students. … There would be a drop in the number of faculty and the number of classes offered, and so average class sizes would increase.” There’d be less diversity in terms of classes, and many more tenure-track faculty members would have to teach introductory courses, at the expense of upper-level ones, the paper says. Professionals who moonlight as adjuncts in business and law or other fields also would teach fewer courses, costing students their “real-world experience.”…

[According to one of the authors,] “Any money spent helping improve the plight of adjuncts has to come from somewhere, and is not money being spent to, say, reduce tuition for low-income students or reduce student debt.”

Greedy Union Demands Others Sacrifice

Latest updates

nbc connecticutAlthough Connecticut is facing a deteriorating budget situation, SEIU does not want to make any concessions. Instead, the union wants taxes hiked again even though Connecticut already has some of the highest taxes in the country.

In a statement, the Connecticut State Employees Association, in conjunction with the SEIU, sent a statement slamming the process by which the Malloy Administration is attempting to balance the budget which faces a $250 million shortfall this year, and in excess of $900 million next year.

The groups want to see the line held on benefits, and increases on Connecticut’s wealthiest residents to close the gap.

“… It’s time to stop using state employees as a punching bag and start pushing for a revenue system that asks our wealthiest and most successful individuals to pay their fair share” the statement read.
