Daughters of Charity Workers Bust SEIU's Dave Regan for Rushed Vote on Massive Concessions

Here’s the latest development in the fast-paced story that Tasty described earlier today.

It turns out that SEIU’s Dave Regan was in such a rush to jam concessions down the throats of 3,000 workers at the Daughters of Charity Health System that he violated their rights under SEIU-UHW’s own constitution! 

Regan gave the California workers only 9 hours' advance notice before conducting a vote to ratify deep cuts to workers' health and pension benefits even though the union's constitution requires three days' advance notice before such a vote.

This afternoon, dozens of workers delivered the following letter to Regan and SEIU President Mary Kay Henry in Washington, DC to demand an immediate stop to the unconstitutional vote. Way to go, Daughters of Charity workers!
