Rather than allow workers a private ballot, SEIU engaged in a corporate campaign in an effort to coerce workers into their union.
True Card Check Story of SEIU and U.S. Labor Coordinated Abuse
This is an important story in these times of the Big Labor takeover of the Federal government. This documented true story that contains Card Check abuse, SEIU physical violence against workers, SEIU abuse of the NLRB system, orchestrated false allegations, and a corrupt Clinton appointee; and you can see and hear about what happens when Big Labor Bosses control a presidents administration like they do today.
Mr. Randy Schabers story begins with the discovery of an ongoing SEIU card check forced unionism scheme that included harassing employees at their homes. Mr. Schaber offered to hold an NLRB sanctioned secret ballot election.
The SEIU organizers replied, We will never let your employees have a secret ballot election. Then, Mr. Schaber began to feel the pain that SEIUs corporate campaign is designed to inflict.
To hear Mr. Schaber tell the story in his own words, we recommend that you listen and watch his full interview (links to parts 1, 2, and 3) or for a brief description view his shortened interview. You will be amazed at the abuse of federal power coordinated by SEIU in the 1990s when they had less control of the White House than they do today.
For more information, you can download the edited version of the U.S. House of Representatives Report that discusses SEIUs corporate campaign and the U.S. Department of Labors abuses that Mr. Schaber suffered and eventually resulted in the dismissal of a Clinton appointee.
The following are quotes from that U.S. House of Representatives report:
John Sweeney, President of the AFLCIO, declared a new direction for the international labor unions that the Federation represents. Mr. Sweeney declared that labor would become far more militant in the pursuit of organizing and collective bargaining objectives. The term used to organize formally non-union corporations became known as corporate campaigns.
A corporate campaign has several distinct elements. Two of the most prominent elements are: having the target company perceived negatively by the companys investors, customers, employees and the public, and initiating enforcement and oversight actions by federal, State, and local governmental agencies. In other words, organized labor in a corporate campaign does not necessarily target the employees of the corporation as it had done historically, but rather focuses on corporate management.
Perhaps Stephen Lerner, Organizing Director of the Service Employees International Union said it best—
Instead of asking, How do we win a majority of (employee) votes?, we should be asking, How do we develop power to force employers to recognize the union and sign a contract.
