A Country That Works: Getting America Back on Track by Andy Stern
A Country That Works: Getting America Back on Track

Eric Sisneros, December 10, 2006

The "restructuring" of SEIU in California will displace hundreds of loyal staff when several public sector locals are merged into only 4 statewide as of January 1, 2007.

Heads have already begun to roll but not before direct dealing with OPEIU members garnered offers of a 41% cut in pay with the expectation of working 12-16 hour days.

For the past 5 months Mr. Stern and his representatives in California have ignored information requests and have refused to bargain in good faith with OPEIU members who have loyally worked for his union.

How can Mr. Stern disrespect his employees, circumvent the National Labor Relations Act, and then offer suggestions on how to repair the labor movement in America?

Mr. Stern, treat the union staff with the same dignity that you demand for your members. Come to the table with our official, elected representatives and negotiate in good faith.
