Free choice for SEIU too

February 06, 2009

Re "Labor's real fight," Opinion, Feb. 1, and "Bay Area health union seeks vote on members," Feb. 3

I find it ironic that the Service Employees International Union is opposing the request of the petition signers to be represented by a different union. Sounds as if the SEIU, one of the biggest proponents of the Employee Free Choice Act, isn't willing to extend free choice to its own union members when those members want to secede from the SEIU.

If the Employee Free Choice Act is such a benefit to the working person, then the SEIU should be eager to abide by the same principles it demands business and employees abide by. If not, then this act should not be passed by Congress.
