Celebrity deathmatch...Stern vs. Roselli ... LEGAL ACTION?

As one who used to be on Roselli's list, I've received tons of "information" from Sal and the old guard at UHW. DVD's, letters, news clippings, etc. I'm very loyal to our union, but to me, loyalty involves always being vigilent to help keep our union on the right track. So I have listened to Sal and his supporters. I've written back and forth. I really tried to talk those folks into staying within our ranks when they formed NUHW. We can tolerate dissent and we should always embrace constructive reform.  read more »

Is SEIU in need of reform?

Absolutely. 503 is one of the better locals in SEIU, but I see reform as an ongoing process, something that must never end. The news doesn't get better. There's only one person that can keep your union on track. You. That is you, if you are a member. Staff cannot do it. They have a job description. Keeping the union on track is not part of it.
