The Service Employees International Union (SEIU) is grabbing workers’ dues money and sticking it in an enforcement fund to threaten politicians of both parties that you better toe the Big Labor party line — or else.
SEIU’s boss Andy Stern “. . . threatened . . . to unleash money from a $10 million ‘accountability’ fund against any political figure — Democrats included — who breaks promises to organized labor.
‘Any Democrat — or Republican — who said they were going to support us on health care or free choice and turns against us is going to paint a target’ on their backs,” Andy Stern told the Associated Press in an interview. . . .
With the vast majority of Americans opposed to the Card Check Forced Unionism Bill, SEIU will need to hammer people to get them to stay in line. It’s sad, but true, but many elected officials still choose the will of the union boss over the will of the workers the union bosses claim to represent.
