In addition to Bob King’s “grievance gambit” discussed in the next post/article, other unions are looking for ways to hide the fact that they are not able to achieve for their members at the bargaining table what they originally promised they would. In this recent SEIU example, it appears the union staged a “fake fight” with a hospital, so it could appear that SEIU Healthcare Michigan president Marge Faville swooped in and solved the situation, taking attention away from the “bad deal” that the SEIU got for hospital employees.

The SEIU then pressed employees to ratify the deal – without letting them actually see it!
