Source: SEIU-UHW’s Dave Regan Caved in on Transfer of Long-Term Care Workers

Dave Regan has reportedly surrendered his sword to SEIU President Mary Kay Henry by agreeing to transfer SEIU-UHW's long-term care workers to SEIU Local 6434, according to one source whose report has not yet been confirmed.

Earlier this year, Henry appointed former SEIU Secretary-Treasurer Eliseo Medina to serve as a "hearing officer" to iron out the details of transferring the long-term care workers. Henry tasked Medina with producing a recommendation by June 2.

In recent months, Regan threatened Henry with "a war" and violated a gag order imposed by SEIU's International Executive Board. Regan also had SEIU-UHW's Executive Board pass a resolution that opposed the transfer of the workers and also labeled Henry "a disappointment."

Nonetheless, Tasty's source says Reagan recently threw in the towel after months of energetic chest-puffing and posturing that appears to have been little more than bluster.
