I just wanted to take a moment and personally thank you for lending us your expertise and hard work in helping [Company Name Withheld] remain Union-Free. You were instrumental in helping me stop the Teamsters, who had been previously batting 1000 against [Company Name]; winning several elections against this past year. With a resounding 50% margin of victory, I believe we sent them a clear message that we intend to remain union-free.

SEIU Watch

SEIU members in a school district in Michigan are being sued by the SEIU Local over the ownership of a banquet hall. The employees of the Taylor school district had built the hall with money secured via fund raising efforts (as opposed to union dues), prior to a merger of the Taylor local with an SEIU local in Lansing. What happened?

Typical SEIU strong-arm tactics. The Taylor employees decided they wanted to undo the 10-year-old merger with the Lansing local and remain a distinct SEIU local, but the Lansing local didn’t want to want to play nice. Kathie Fields, former president of the Taylor union local, and a defendant in the lawsuit, sent a petition with nearly 400 signatures to the International headquarters, asking the International to dissolve the merger or send legal help. After this request was ignored, a 200-signature petition was sent to the Michigan Employment Relations Commission to decertify the SEIU in Taylor, and the Lansing local filed suit a month later.

A Texas SEIU local has filed for bankruptcy rather than have to pay the combined $7.8 million judgment for it’s illegal activities against Professional Janitorial Service of Houston. Never mind that the parent International spent $80 million it didn’t have helping to elect Barak Obama twice.

The jury found the SEIU local to have made false claims, false statements, and engaged in media collaboration to libel PJS. The jury ordered the local to pay $5.3 million to the company for the harassment, and the judge tacked on $2.5 million for interest accrued during the proceedings.
