The SEIU jumps in again on Obama’s behalf, with an ad that shows mostly white, working- and middle-class Pennsylvanians complaining about their gas prices and then declaring their faith in Obama.
The Service Employees International Union (SEIU) has been using violent and stalking tactics to win a union fight with the California Nurses Association. In fact, a restraining order has been issued by a California judge against them.
The California Nurses Assn. on Wednesday secured a temporary restraining order against the Service Employees International Union, accusing it of harassing the board members of the Oakland-based group.
The two influential nationwide unions have a long, acrimonious rivalry that reached a new height in March after they publicly battled over whether the SEIU should represent more than 8,000 nurses and other healthcare workers in Ohio.
The dispute flared again at a labor conference in Dearborn, Mich., on Saturday, when SEIU protesters attempted to gain access to a ballroom where Rose Ann DeMoro, executive director of the nurses association, had been expected to speak. Several people were injured in a scuffle, including a 68-year-old woman who fell after being pushed.
DeMoro accused SEIU members and staff last week of stalking nurses association board members at their homes, looking through windows and shouting.
SEIU spokeswoman Lynda Tran said union organizers have been driving a nurse and respiratory therapist to board members’ homes to express their disapproval of the association’s tactics in Ohio last month.
Here is the video of two SEIU stalkers:
So, Barack Obama takes money for his Presidential campaign from an organization who uses violence and intimidation to get their way. Flap calls on Obama to either reject the SEIU’s thug-like tactics and violence or to refuse their ads and money.
What is it going to be Barry?
