SEIU Gives Employers and Employees the Middle Finger with Intimidation Manual - It's What They Do

The Washington Times describes how the existence of a 70-plus page intimidation manual was confirmed during the discovery process in a pending court case.

The new union tactic is to use pressure on corporate boardrooms as a means of organizing entire companies nationwide rather than recruiting workers on a site-by-site basis; in short, to organize employers rather than employees. To create this pressure, unions attempt to push businesses to the edge of bankruptcy, with little regard for the welfare of employer and employee. They attempt to strong-arm businesses into agreeing to take away the secret ballot for employees in union-organizing elections via card check. They also try to force employers to restrict their own speech on union issues so that workers will not get both sides of the story on unionization. Among the SEIU’s demands is that employers agree to bargain only with it, to the exclusion of all other unions, regardless of what workers want....

EDITORIAL COMMENT: This revelation only confirms what we have believed for years, that unions are desperate for new members and will resort to any means to recruit them. Secondly, the union-friendly NLRB (National Labor Relations Board) is unlikely to do anything about these strong-arm tactics.

UPDATE: Breitbart's Big Government has an article in the same vein about how the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AF$CME) operates.
