SEIU Fight Reaches Federal Court

The battle royale between Service Employees International Union head Andy Stern, local chapters run by Oakland labor activist Sal Rosselli, and the California Nurses Association, has entered a new and even more combative phase. Yesterday, as the Sacramento Bee reports, Stern’s organization filed a federal lawsuit against Rosselli and his co-horts, accusing them of diverting membership dues into a slush fund outside the control of the national union, to “run a shadow operation off the books and they intentionally deceived their own members and the federal government about how the money would be used.” In response, Rosselli told the Bee, “”The lawsuit and the PR circus around it are a hoax perpetrated on you, the press, and our members in order to smear us and shut down the Stern team’s political opposition.”
