SEIU Makes Play for 'Dues' From Conn. Subsidy
From The Washington Examiner's Beltway Confidential (also appeared on the National Right to Work Committee website and The Oklahoman):
The Service Employees International Union (SEIU) is trying to unionize in-home health care workers, based on the theory that they qualify as public employees because the money paid to them is subsidized by the state. "The only notice home health care workers receive concerning a union election is a nondescript mailing asking them if they wish to join the union," says the Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI). "Under this process, the union only needs to receive a majority of returned cards—not a majority of all workers—to be recognized as those workers’ exclusive bargaining representative."
