Local 221 President Eric Banks: "Did you I tend this for me?"

Check out this hilarious prank email that was forwarded to Tasty. A reader decided to try to find out how many staff SEIU 221 sent to fight Kaiser workers...The answer is 3, which is a lot for a local with less than 7000 members.

Here is the first email that was sent to Banks:

How many organizers have you sent us? We need more staff/members down up here asap! Unless you want to work as a field rep in Oklahoma I'd suggest you stop fucking around down there and get us some people.

Call me today.
