I would suggest making this information louder and more often. If enough of this info had been disemminated sooner, we may not be facing this situation today. Keep up the good work.

I wanted to drop you a line to let you know about the terrific job Joe Brock and LRI did for our employees. Joe was extremely knowledgeable, easy to work with and has great interpersonal skills that allow him to genuinely connect with employees at all levels. Our facilities mechanics and custodians were so appreciate of his work and the information he shared that he received many hugs, handshakes and thank yous on the last day. Joe also left management with a lot to think about and a road map of what needs to be done differently. Our employees ultimately voted to overwhelmingly defeat the Teamsters 43-no to 3-yes that allows us to continue to work directly with our employees in their best interest giving the us the opportunity to make things right. Joe was a great partner to HR as well, collaborating on the strategy and actions needed to make the union campaign a success. Thank you again for the great service. I would welcome the opportunity to be a reference for Joe and LRI at anytime.

SEIU Watch

Well, it’s been a fun few months for the employees at Luther Manor Nursing Home in Saginaw, MI.  By a two to one margin, Luther workers voted on Sept. 23 to dump SEIU and go with Sal Roselli’s NUHW in his first raid of an SEIU shop outside of California.  SEIU members at Muskegon’s Hackley Hospital are waiting for their election date.

Coming into the Luther election SEIU tried a number of fat carrot and pointy stick tactics to win back the hearts and minds of fed up Luther workers.  SEIU organized barbeques called “backyard bashes” where Luther workers could win a flat screen or bike just for showing up to meet the union hierarchy.  Earlier, SEIU held a number of “vote until you get it right” contract ratification re-re-revotes at Luther, with reports of ballot box stuffing and voter intimidation.

Meanwhile, a benefits clerk for SEIU-UHW in California was sentenced last week to 12 years in prison for stealing information on 30,000 SEIU members who work for Kaiser Permanente.  The stolen information was used to open old accounts and take advantage of instant credit offers to the most credit worthy of the Kaiser employees, leading to the theft of an estimate $1M or more in high-end merchandise.
