“Stop Eating So Much, Fatso,” says SEIU-UHW’s Email to Workers

As 2013 draws to a close, most unions are sending out end-of-the-year emails summarizing last year’s battles and victories, and highlighting the challenges that lie ahead.

Except, of course, SEIU-UHW!

Last week, Dave Regan sent off a strange-ass email that could have been penned by a corporate HR executive.

SEIU-UHW’s email doesn’t even mention unions or workers. Instead, it tells workers to stop eating so much!

Forget “bread and roses.” 

Regan’s “21st Century Unionism” is all about “Total Health Program,” “Wellness Cops,” and filling the Boss’s stocking with billions of dollars of benefit cuts taken from workers.  

Dear Meg,

Ever have a holiday dinner so big it ended with the "I'll never do that again" New Year's resolution?

We’re all working to get healthier as part of the Total Health program, but let’s be honest – there’s no better feeling than sitting at the dinner table with family around the holidays. But that doesn’t mean we’re doomed to an unhealthy life.

That’s why I’m changing things up a little this year with a healthy, delicious, and quick-to-make side dish. I’m working hard to get healthier for my family.

What are your favorite holiday recipes? Check out our Let’s Get Healthy at Kaiser Facebook Group, where you can leave your favorite recipes, post photos, and talk about what your facility is doing to get healthy.

One thing you’ll find there is my recipe for Garlic Herb Roasted Potatoes.

I can’t wait to see what you bring to the table.

Happy Holidays!
