SEIU Plays Hardball

by | Jan 25, 2019 | News

The SEIU played hardball with an employee (and former shop steward) who refused to sign a new union card that was designed to commit union members to paying dues whether or not they decided to leave the union. In anticipation of the Janus decision, SEIU Local 668 (Pennsylvania) presented their membership with new cards designed to protect the union from an anticipated loss of dues. When 14-year veteran social worker, Francisco Molina, sent a letter to the union refusing to sign the card and resigning from the union, the union refused to respond. Instead, two months later, he received a letter from his Lehigh County employer informing him that he was being dismissed because he “violated the conflict of interest policy.” Molina, who has never received discipline in his 14 years on the job, believes it was retaliation and a violation of his constitutional rights, and is suing the union.
