SEIU Local 1000 leaders rejected Wednesday a controversial plan to pay its top executives annual stipends of up to $100,000, despite union President Yvonne Walker’s support for the proposal.

At its Los Angeles meeting, the union’s board of directors voted 34-24 against paying five- and six-figure yearly stipends to Walker and three vice presidents.

All four officers participated in Wednesday’s vote.

Opponents to the stipend plan blasted out emails, derisively labeling it “CEO pay”…

A previous attempt to provide large stipends to the local’s president and vice presidents was withdrawn after it generated opposition.
