In particular, take note of this.
SEIU spokeswoman Michelle Ringuette said the union "is going to be looking very closely" into allegations this week that the local leadership retaliated against some staff members when they refused to sign a letter in support of Freeman.
A small number of staffers were transferred to positions far from their homes, and about 10 had their union cellphone service terminated after balking at signing the letter, according to three workers who spoke on condition of anonymity because they feared reprisal.
To think, people were wondering why the unions were so eager to get rid of secret ballot elections.
Probably because, in a secret ballot, no one really knows who voted which way -- versus cards, which the union itself collects and thus can use to determine who still needs "convincing".
But then again, how else could the unions channel millions of dollars annually to Democrat candidates, especially when they're doing that instead of funding the worker pensions they promised?
