great to be able to get good information to educate employees

As a current target of a union organizing campaign, I highly value this site to provide me any new information regarding the Card Check Bill or anything that could be of value in combating what is unquestionably the most undemocratric and biased procedure and battle I have ever encountered. Representing oneself is difficult enough and I appreciate all that the LRI does.

SEIU Watch

SEIU has apparently lost the trust of a group of their California members. The group is using a website, http://www.helpsaveourstate.com/, and even an appearance on Fox News, to challenge the union over how it spends dues money, particularly when it comes to political spending and exorbitant salaries for SEIU executives.

David Bego, President and CEO of Executive Management Services and author of The Devil At My Doorstep, makes an appearance on the segment.  If you’d like to read his first-hand account of fighting a corporate campaign against the SEIU, you can purchase the book here.

In another part of the state, The Mendocino County Board of Supervisors voted unanimously to cut about 700 of its employees’ pay by 12.5 percent. The action was the result of over a year of failed negotiations with the SEIU.  According to Second District Supervisor John McCowen , “The fact is that a little over a year ago, people stood before the board at budget time and said, you need to declare bankruptcy.'” McCowen continued, “The county is still in a position where we are very seriously at risk financially.”
