Labor movement unites against SEIU
July 7th, 2009
Randy Shaw of Beyond Chron reports on last weekend’s Unite Here convention: “The real story of this convention is that this is no longer a fight between SEIU and UNITE HERE. Rather, it is SEIU vs. the American Labor Movement.”
The labor movement has united against SEIU’s anti-union attacks that divide workers and weaken our voice for the benefit of top SEIU officials. Fourteen major U.S. unions pledged “material and moral” support to Unite Here against SEIU’s raid, and union leaders harshly condemned SEIU and its president Andy Stern.
