SEIU's Dave Regan and John August Prepare for Last Hurrah at the Disneyland Hotel

With the Kaiser ballot count just hours away, Tasty has learned that Dave Regan and John August will be holding what may be the final multi-million-dollar junket for the "partnership" unions this weekend!

The venue for the three-day shindig says it all… Disneyland!

From May 3-5, Regan, August and Kaiser Permanente CEO Bernard Tyson will be kickin' it with Mickey, Goofy and Donald Duck as they spend millions of dollars of workers’ Partnership Taxes on poolside parties, live music, happy hours, and endless rides on the Matterhorn.

Who will be attending this three-day bash?

Apparently, Regan has hand-picked approximately 200 of his favorite SEIU-UHW "Contract Specialists" and shop stewards for this all-expenses-paid trip... along with lots of SEIU staffers.

Here's how the Coalition of Kaiser Permanente Unions (CKPU) describes one party (see image below):
Party Time! The party kicks-off at 6:30pm on Friday, May 3rd in the Disneyland South Exhibit Hall (Fantasy Tower). A good time will be had by all as we dance through the decades and today's hottest music!... Light hors d'oeuvres will be served...

On Friday morning, Kaiser’s incoming CEO Bernard Tyson will deliver a speech in the Disneyland Hotel's Fantasy Tower! In 21st-century-union style, the partnership unions will allow Tyson -- a multi-millionaire -- to push his “the Boss is poor” message on the assembled Kaiser workers.

Here's how an agenda describes Tyson's speech: "Tyson offers his view of partnership... particularly as we face the demands of health care reform." The latter phrase is Kaiser/SEIU's codeword for their laughable claim that Kaiser is somehow facing tough times ahead... and that workers need to eliminate their pensions and cut their health benefits "to save Kaiser."

B/t/w, Tasty has posted below a 16-page "annotated agenda" for the three-day conference, with details on the speakers, etc.

CEO Tyson -- with apparent inspiration from Pinocchio -- will undoubtedly refuse to mention Kaiser's $8.7 billion in profits or the eight separate pension plans that he receives from Kaiser! Here's Tyson's pay stub for a two-week period... when he pocketed $805,422!

As Dave Regan and John August spend millions of Partnership Taxes at Disneyland, Tasty hears there's growing anger among Kaiser's workers about the newly imposed tax -- especially among members of SEIU-UHW and OPEIU. That's why spending a gazillion dollars of workers' Partnership Taxes for a bash at Disneyland is such a genius move!

Lastly, readers may recall that during last year's partnership junket in Hollywood, the partnership unions conducted their infamous 21st-century "flashmob strike."

This time, SEIU apparently plans to unveil another bold and innovative strategy for rebuilding the U.S. labor movement:  a formal partnership between Goofy and 'Contract Buddy'!

So... let's get this Kaiser ballot count started! Time to get rid of these corrupt fools!
