SEIU is a real piece of work.
What started as a union for janitors, window washers and elevator operators (obviously elevator operators are in high demand today), SEIU represents over 100 occupations and is now heavily involved with the health industry and government employees (bureaucrats).
Since most bureaucrats want cradle to grave coverage for everything including the unwritten "little work as possible" clause and the hospital, home care and nursing home employees want more and more government subsidies, it makes sense for SEIU to represent these groups. SEIU could strangle our health care system and government at the same time, but SEIU has bigger bones to pick.
Pennsylvania Union Leader Criticized for Threatening Legal Action Over Boy Scout's Volunteerism
A Pennsylvania union leader has come under fire after threatening legal action against the city of Allentown for allowing a Boy Scout to voluntarily clear a walking path in a local park.
Nick Balzano, president of the Service Employees International Union's Allentown chapter, said last week that the union might file a grievance against the city for allowing 17-year-old Kevin Anderson to clear the hiking trail, instead of paying some of the 39 recently laid-off SEIU members to do the work.
Balzano's office did not return messages left by FoxNews.com, but the Morning Call quoted him as telling the city council that the union would be "looking into the Cub Scout or Boy Scout who did the trails … There's to be no volunteers."
I'm sure SEIU is in negotiations to unionize lawyers to file harassing lawsuits against their opponents and thugs to beat them up if the opponent wins in court.
