SEIU Raids Minnesota Medicaid

Forbes published this article by Matt Patterson, Executive Director of the Center for Worker Freedom, on July 19, 2016:

“The PCAs have been forced into a collective bargaining agreement in clear violation of their First Amendment freedoms of speech and assembly.  The good news is that there is a legal remedy for their plight – decertification.  Kris Greene and her fellow PCAs are determined to collect enough authorization cards to call for a new vote and kick the union out.

They are determined that, this time, the PCAs have all the facts and are fully informed. They have launched a website, decertify.org, that allows PCAs to generate an authorization card, which they can then print and mail in.

And they have established a new online community, MNPCA.org, designed to be a shared resource for those who care for loved ones at home, and to prove they can help one another without a union.

If Mrs. Greene and her allies are successful, they will have pulled off the largest decertification in United States labor history.  For the SEIU, millions of dollars in dues are at stake. And as for the politicians who herded the PCAs into this corrupt bargain, they need a rich and fat union to keep filling their campaign coffers.

One shakes in disgust.”
