Has Anything Changed?

Latest updates

world net dailyA former SEIU employee writes about what SEIU trained him to do.

After moving to Los Angeles at the age of 18, I ended up becoming a union organizer with SEIU. I was trained to go to non-union hospitals, hang around and find angry employees… Because of their anger, these employees were easily manipulated, and would get us inside the hospital to talk to other employees.

Unions are built on disgruntled employees, not happy, productive ones.

Fighting Just to Fight?

Latest updates

chicago tribune 2SEIU president Mary Kay Henry admitted that even if McDonald’s folded and gave the union everything it’s asking for, the union would still keep fighting.

Mary Kay Henry, president of the Service Employees International Union, called on McDonald’s to sit with a union at a national bargaining table and put some of its profits into the pockets of workers.

“Even when we get $15 and a union we will keep fighting,” Henry said.

Do Rank-and File Members Agree?

Latest updates

chicago tribune 2After spending millions of dollars in members’ dues money, SEIU president Mary Kay Henry claims that her union cares about whether McDonalds workers are unionized but that it doesn’t care which union they choose to join.

In an interview, Henry said SEIU won’t necessarily represent fast food workers. She said workers will decide who will represent them when McDonald’s agrees to negotiate wages and benefits.

“It doesn’t matter to us who the members become. What matters to us is that these workers win a union,” Henry said.

How Much Is SEIU Costing Taxpayers?

Latest updates

chicago tribune 2There were over 300 members of law enforcement on hand for a two-day SEIU-funded protest of McDonald’s corporate offices. But those weren’t the only personnel costs to taxpayers: police spent five months preparing for the protest. Why so much planning? Because over 130 people were arrested last year at similar protests. About 100 protesters were arrested this year.

Harassment of McDonald’s Continues

Latest updates

washington free beaconNot content with using the NLRB and OSHA to harass McDonalds, SEIU is now trying to harass the company with an FTC investigation claiming that the company is “abusive and predatory” toward its franchisees.

Aloysius Hogan, a labor policy expert at the free-market think tank Competitive Enterprise Institute, said the FTC complaint represents a new direction for the campaign. Rather than trying to turn workers against their employers, it seeks to turn franchisees against their parent companies.

“Today’s set of allegations against franchisors is aimed at weakening the franchise business model—the ability to set the terms of franchise agreements and requirements,” Hogan said in a statement. “Already, in another action aimed purely at increasing labor union power, union special interests have pending legal action against franchisors to make them and franchisees jointly liable for employment-related policies. Thousands of small businesses and jobs are at risk.”

The FTC did not respond to request for comment.

[International Franchise Association president Steve] Caldeira pointed to a recent survey that found the majority of franchisees are happy with their arrangements and questioned whether the union actually had the interests of small business leaders in mind when it filed the petition.

“The SEIU’s petition amounts to nothing more than asking the FTC to develop a solution for a problem that doesn’t exist,” Caldeira said. “Franchisees are highly satisfied, they have a high level of trust in their franchisors.”

Demanding Money for Nothing

Latest updates

spokesman-review 2Four non-members of SEIU have filed an unfair labor practice complaint against the union. The four, who work at a hospital in Washington State, say their jobs are being threatened for non-payment of dues during a nine-month gap between labor agreements.

Nonunion employees can’t be forced to pay dues if the union doesn’t have an active bargaining agreement in place, the [Right to Work] foundation’s attorneys said.

According to the complaint, the hospital and the union took a “contract hiatus” for nine months from July 2013 to April 2014. When a new contract was signed in April 2014, it purported to apply retroactively, the complaint said.

The union sent the employees letters, asking them to pay the back dues, according to the complaint. The hospital sent the employees emails this month, saying they would lose their jobs on May 28 if they didn’t pay the dues, the complaint said.

The union is demanding that one of the four pay about $3,000 in back dues.

Falling Far Short

Latest updates

chicago tribune 2Organizers of SEIU’s Fight for $15 campaign had projected that they’d have 5,000 people at McDonald’s corporate offices for a two-day protest. According to police, they only reached about 40% of their attendance goal on the first day. The protest was expected to have been the largest yet, but, in fact, it was about the same size as last year’s protest – even though protesters were bused in from across the country. On the second day, they only had about half as many as the first day.

Never Enough

Latest updates

fox 11Los Angeles considered hiking the minimum wage to $15 an hour over the next several years. Of course, that’s still not enough for SEIU.

Laphonza Butler, president of SEIU California, which represents 700,000 workers, including state employees, janitors, nurses, private security officers and others, told City News Service the proposed timetable for the wage hikes is “a bit disappointing” and said she hoped the full council will consider a “quicker response” to the needs of “struggling” working families.
