I saw this video at a recent seminar on union avoidance and it scared me to realize how easily employees could be "convinced" to sign a union card.

This is a very important website. I am a Union worker but an American First and the idea of open/non-private voting is repugnant to me. It flies in the face of American tradition where your vote is and should be CONFIDENTIAL. Most Union employees feel as I do and they need to know what this is all about. As far as I know, I hope, this sort of thing is not happening in the Union to which I belong. If I find out it is I will protest. All I can say is keep up the good work. I will pass this around to everyone I can. They cannot intimidate me.

Content is consistently relevant and addresses key issues influencing labor relations and union avoidance.

SEIU Watch

CHA-vs-SEIUUHWIn the continuing saga of the legal dispute between the California Hospital Association (CHA) and SEIU-UHW (Dave Regan’s organization), the judge in the case recently handed a victory to the CHA, ordering Regan’s UHW to submit to binding arbitration. The legal squabble continues to highlight the fact that the union focuses on what is best for the union organization and its staff (collection of dues) versus what is best for union members and/or consumers, which is what unions purport to do. As examples, the “sweetheart deal” under contention states that the SEIU-UHW would not “sponsor or support legislation, initiatives, or regulatory action adverse to the California hospital industry,” nor would the SEIU-UHW make any comments “raising concern about… executive compensation in health care.” In other words, as long as the CHA agreed to allow SEIU-UHW free hand to collect union dues from hospital employees, the SEIU-UHW would NOT act like it represented the “little guy” employees against the “corporate giant employer and it’s high-paid executives.”  Doesn’t sound much like a labor union, does it?
