The Service Employees International Union is one of America’s largest labor unions. Behind their $260 million war chest lies a dedicated effort to restrict employees’ rights in the workplace; a highly partisan political operation; and a history of intimidation, crime and corruption.
“If we can’t use the power of persuasion, we’ll use the persuasion of power.”
Andy Stern, Former SEIU International President
- #METOO SEIU: Interviews and testimony from dozens of union employees describe the SEIU and its prominent locals as being “plagued by sexual misconduct scandals.” Bad behavior by top union officials was reportedly well-known among staff, but often swept under the rug.

- Denying Employee Votes: Rather than following the democratic process of secret ballot votes on whether to unionize, SEIU pressures employers to cut backroom deals so it can use the intimidation-laced public “card check” unionization process.
