They're Back!

Last Friday, SEIU ordered hundreds of staffers and out-of-state temp workers back into their rental cars to knock on Kaiser workers' doors. Xperezroselli posted this cartoon to capture the scene that's playing out across California. Check out the house visitor struggling with his vest in the picture to the left. (Fleece vest in LA?)

So why is SEIU knocking on your door again? Tasty hears that SEIU's DC officials have become extremely nervous as they've watched a growing wave of support for NUHW. Readers might remember that, at the beginning of the three-week voting period, SEIU officials spent millions of dollars on a 10-day house-visit blitz by thousands of out-of-state staffers, TruCorps workers, and even laid-off U.S. Census workers. Apparently, SEIU expected that massive blitz to lock down an election victory.

Well, that didn't exactly happen. That's why SEIU is spending millions more dollars to launch "Blitz No. 2." Tasty hears that SEIU officials are even sending secretaries, administrative assistants and other office staff to knock on doors.

And in another sign of desperation, SEIU staffers are apparently getting increasingly aggressive in questioning Kaiser workers about their votes. Secret ballot means secret, SEIU!

Don't let anyone touch or mark or handle your ballot or your tear-off ballot receipt.
