Nurses at another Mayo hospital vote to remove union
It may not be as contagious as Covid, but for the second time in as many weeks nurses at a Mayo hospital in southern Minnesota have voted to end union…
Schadenfreude: pleasure derived by someone from another person’s misfortune.
I got a text this morning alerting me to a potential strike by the people who work as employees for the Service Employees International Union (SEIU). From the National Institute for Labor Relations Research:
Perhaps the most decided disadvantage to being a union boss must be that you deal with unionized employees who turn your own tactics against you as an employer. Service Employees International Union bosses were stopped dead in their tracks as they resorted to tactics other employers use to stay in business. The local of the Office and Professional Employees International Union (OPEIU) authorized a strike Tuesday against their employer, The Service Employees International Union (SEIU). Both sides have agreed to go into mediation.
Anyone who follows the Center knows that we have been working for several years on a project called “Employee Freedom.” We shine the light on the dark and dirty cycle of union dues taken from employees to use for the increasingly left-wing agenda of public-sector unions.
So I admit it is a pleasure to see my friends at the SEIU struggling with reductions in revenue due to the Janus v. Afscme decision, and other challenges that all businesses face.
We wish the SEIU employees great success, and pray that the SEIU executives fully appreciate the irony in their situation.
Have a great week!
