Card Check: “When SEIU Is The Devil At Your Doorstep”Thursday, January 14th, 2010 by Admin
Our colleagues at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce hosted a conference yesterday looking at the use of “corporate campaign” tactics by union officials to attack the reputation of employers.
Of course, the biggest perpetrator right now of those campaigns is SEIU — whose antics (and worse) we have thoroughly documented as they create a massive black eye for the Employee Free Choice Act.
But card check organizing and corporate campaigns go hand in hand because often the goal of corporate campaigns is to “convince” the employer to offer unfettered card check access to employees (and therefore trade away the right to a secret ballot for all those employees). Therefore it’s important to know what corporate campaigns really look like.
Check out this recap of yesterday’s event at BigGovernment.com, which highlights the story of business owner Dave Bego who says he was told by SEIU “negotiators” that “We enjoy conversation, but we embrace confrontation.” And, of course, check out our litany of stories about SEIU.
