To those on the left who mocked my question relating the issues, I give you this press release:
Union prepared to spend more than $150 million, mobilize tens of thousands during and AFTER the election to win healthcare, big improvements for working people.
Under the plan, SEIU leaders are pledging to
spend more than $150 million and put tens of thousands of members in
motion to achieve those goals by the end of the first 100 days of a new
SEIU leaders also
pledged to continue the union’s unprecedented growth by creating a
national plan to unite more than 500,000 new members in the union by
2012. That would make SEIU the largest union in American history that
is not exclusively public sector, and ensure that it has the strength
to continue winning high standards of pay and benefits for its members
and all working people.
So, once again, tell me how expanding collective bargaining rights to public employees and SEIU’s involvement in elections aren’t related?
