SEIU Organizers: “We Will Never Let Your Employees Vote”
An employer in the building management industry recently sat down with the National Right to Work Committee to share his first-hand account of the union bosses’ abusive card check organizing scheme. What followed was a harrowing inside report on the personal and economic impact of Big Labor’s scorched-earth “corporate campaign” strategy.
In the mid-1990s, the radical Service Employees International Union (SEIU) targeted Randy Schaber’s company in Sacramento for unionization, even though the company paid its employees higher than the average union wage and with better benefits.
Didn’t matter, the union bosses wanted more dues.
When Schaber learned that the SEIU was paying 8-10 full-time union organizers to unionize the workplace through any means necessary – including intimidating visits to employees’ homes to get them to sign cards – the company agreed that the fair course of action would be to support the workers’ right to a secret ballot.
But the SEIU organizers didn’t want a secret ballot. They told Schaber, “You don’t understand. We will never let your employees vote.”
In this 3-part video series, Schaber discusses how the SEIU union militants started filing frivolous charges to get the company to back down and how a former SEIU employee in Bills Clinton's Department of Labor wasted taxpayer money investigating alleged wage and hour violations at the company (before it was eventually revealed that the company had actually overpaid its employees).
