The above news story about SEIU was passed on to me by a fellow AMGer and it could be great news in the battle against Forced Unionism.

Major labor union to slash budget in wake of Trump victory

"SEIU was a major supporter of the Democrats in the last election, spending $21.6 million to help elect them, according to the Center for Responsive Politics."

Q: How much of that $21.6 million actually came from their so-called Fair Share Fees?
We deserve to know the truth!

If a strong professional code

If a strong professional code of conduct was implemented by SEIU and required all of their union members, fee payers and staffers to sign it, perhaps that would solve some of the organization's larger problems.

Since other labor unions do it, do you think it would help with SEIU?

On Saturday, February 4th, the Maine SEIU looked like a political beehive again… but what’s that fishy smell? The online calendar of events for that labor union at https://www.mseaseiu.org/index.php/calendar-of-events/ had nothing listed for this weekend day, but the parking lot was full at 1:45 PM and the lights were blazing inside.

Was this another political campaign of some sort?

Were they organizing some sort of political protest?

How did any/all expenses for today’s activities get billed?

Audit the telephone and internet use for today at Maine SEIU

On this snowy Saturday, February 11, the Maine SEIU was again buzzing with weekend activity. Almost all parking were full at 1:15 PM and the lights were blazing.

The organization’s online Calendar of events at https://www.mseaseiu.org/index.php/event/msea-board-meeting/?instance_id... has two listings for today:

MSEA Board Meeting
When:
February 11, 2017 @ 9:00 am – 5:00 pm
Where:
MSEA Board Room
65 State St
Augusta, ME 04330
USA”

MCCS Bargaining Committee
When:
February 11, 2017 @ 10:00 am – 2:00 pm
Where:
MSEA Mural Room
65 State St
Augusta, ME 04330
USA”

Needless to say, it seems very odd that this union/PAC would have a day full of meetings on the weekend. What were they really doing? Where political activities also involved? How did all related expenses get billed?

As part of a detailed procedural audit, union members and fee payers should demand some targeted reviews of specific items like the telephone, internet and computer use for today at Maine SEIU.
