"It is said that 'democracy dies in darkness.' It is with deep disappointment and great concern that I have watched dark shadows fall upon SEIU, diminishing hope for revitalizing the labor movement."
Sal Rosselli, President, SEIU-UHW Letter to SEIU President Andy Stern resigning Executive Board position [Read the letter here.]
What other union bosses say about SEIU's Top Boss, Andy Stern:
''He's trying to corporatize the labor movement. When you listen to him talk, it's all about market share. It's about loss and gain. It's about producers and consumers. I think he's enamored of all the glitz and hype of the Wall Street types. He must be a fan of Donald Trump. I think he wants his own TV show.''
''...a rather small peacock..."
Thomas Buffenbarger, President, International Association of Machinists [Source: New York Times, Jan. 30, 2005]
"The fact that one large international union has chosen to insert itself into the affairs of UNITE HERE is deplorable and arrogant."
Mark H. Ayers, President, Building and Construction Trades Department, AFL-CIO on Andy Stern's interjection into the breakup of UNITE-HERE [Source: Politico.com, PDF statement here, March 3, 2009]
"Stern and other SEIU leaders have now centralized all important national bargaining and organizing in D.C. and effectively neutered the power of the members to bargain with their bosses. The result will be and has been already a series of sweetheart contracts that take away or severely limit the right to strike and other traditional union rights like seniority and workplace grievances.Ē
