In response to Andy Stern’s July 7th memo that fictitiously claims that SEIU has stopped its anti-union raiding of UNITE HERE members and jurisdictions, UNITE HERE President John Wilhelm has released the following document that details SEIU’s ongoing actions.
The attached documents show continued interference by SEIU in UNITE HERE contract negotiations, new organizing drives, and ongoing member representation. In some cases, SEIU which claims to be a champion of the Employee Free Choice Act, has acted to force NLRB elections in places where a card check is already in place.
SEIU’s actions continue even after the majority of the North American labor movement has come out against its raiding of UNITE HERE.
