Newly Obtained Information Shows That Ousted Union Leaders Plotted and Covered Up Wrongdoing
Date:7/9/2009

OAKLAND, Calif., July 9 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Members of SEIU UHW will hold a news conference at 3 p.m. Thursday, July 9 outside the Oakland Federal Building, 1301 Clay Street, to release newly obtained information showing that ousted union President Sal Rosselli and other former top union officials were advised by their attorney that some of the actions may be illegal but took the actions anyway and then followed their lawyer's advice on how to cover them up.

The documents detailing the wrongdoing will be released publicly for the first time at the news conference. They also were included in a letter delivered today to Congressional leaders and members of the California Congressional delegation.

For more than a year, Rosselli and other ousted officers have proclaimed their innocence on charges that led to their removal from SEIU UHW. But the newly revealed documents, which were turned over under court order, show that they knew their activities were improper and were advised on how they could move ahead with their plans and then later "play dumb." One memo explains to Rosselli and John Borsos, a former top union leader, how they can get away with lying under oath.

"I'm disgusted by what I've seen in these documents that show how our former leaders betrayed our trust and misused our money," said Greg Price, a home care worker in Fresno County. "This confirms that that they will stop at nothing to fool members into believing their propaganda, even if it means bending the rules and then covering their tracks."

SEIU UHW represents more than 150,000 healthcare workers across California and our members provide first-rate care to millions of Californians. We are a proud affiliate of the 2 million-member Service Employees International Union (SEIU). Learn more at www.seiu-uhw.org.
