That same SEIU, which gave us the Fight for $15, has pushed for unionizing within the QSR industry, has orchestrated many of the fast food work stoppages we’ve seen at different times around the country and is behind the NYC just cause employment proposal (discussed above) may be soon in for a taste of its own medicine. The union (SEIU, that is) has entered mediation with the Office and Professional Employees International Union (OPEIU – Local 2) which represents workers in the SEIU national headquarters in Washington DC. OPEIU, which rejected SEIU’s last, best and final offer, was already authorized by its members over a week ago to call a strike unless SEIU management shores up “layoff protections, job security and workplace culture.” OPEIU leaders complained that SEIU had cut the number of union-staffed professional and technical support positions, had outsourced work to non-union consultants and “engaged in a prolonged union-busting campaign, even while bargaining a collective agreement with its union staff.” File under: Do as I say, not as I do!
