SEIU Impersonates Nurses in Hostile Takeover Campaign Against California Nurses Association/NNOC
Date:2/5/2009

nvited home visits to CNA/NNOC members. In some cases the visitors and callers have slipped and identified themselves as SEIU staff. One such caller was Jessica Vollmer, who heads Healthcare United in Colorado, a group whose purported mission is "healthcare reform," not participating in takeovers of other unions.

Other players in the campaign are individuals associated with the Prewitt Organizing Fund and its offshoot, the Direct Organizing Group (DOG), which has been engaged in similar takeover campaigns on behalf of SEIU against Engineers & Architects Association Local 8000 (AFL-CIO) in Los Angeles, and the International Union, Security, Police and Fire Professionals of America (SPFPA).

The Stern Playbook seen in attacks on other unions

In an August 2003 newsletter, SPFPA International President David Hickey described the SEIU/Prewitt campaign as including "sending out false literature and anti-union SPFPA videos, creating false websites with misinformation and lies about SPFPA, and threatening the lives and careers of our members... [and through the use of] phone calls and unwelcomed visits to their homes." That campaign parallels almost exactly the attack on CNA/NNOC.

CNA/NNOC Executive Director Rose Ann DeMoro, who is the primary focus of the SEIU smears and takeover campaign, says Stern's goal, is "to destroy CNA/NNOC as the only effective national voice for RN patient advocates."

"SEIU wants to silence the foremost critic of SEIU's program of aiding employer efforts to undermine patient standards, break down working conditions, cut wages, and eliminate employee benefits in return for employer grants of recognition by SEIU."

"RNs are unified in rejecting this blatant attempt by SEIU to force itself on our members," DeMoro said. "They well know the history of SEIU in signing substandard, backdoor deals with employers that sacrifice the interests of RNs
