NLRB Orders SEIU to Pay Back Seattle Hospital Employees Illegally Confiscated Union Dues
In April of 2020, Seattle Hospital worker Roger White filed NLRB unfair labor charges against Service Employees International Union (SEIU) Healthcare 1199NW. White and several other employees had been forced to pay union dues, with no legal justification. They were also denied important information in order to make them continue to pay dues, even after resigning from the union.
With help from the National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation, SEIU was ordered to pay back money that had been illegally taken through forced dues.
In The Center Square, National Right to Work Foundation President Mark Mix is quoted on the matter:
“To maximize their forced dues revenue, SEIU bosses kept Roger White and his coworkers in a state of ignorance by drafting membership forms that misled the very workers the SEIU supposedly represents,” National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation President Mark Mix said in the press release.
