Statement of SEIU Spokesperson Andrew McDonald Responding to Announcement of Lawsuit by SEIU UHW-W
Date:4/8/2008

WASHINGTON, April 8, 2008 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The following is a statement of SEIU spokesperson Andrew McDonald:

"Debate makes our union strong and is central to the health and vitality of any democratic organization.

"For the last several years, SEIU members and leaders have engaged in an open and full debate over the future of our union. For the past two months in particular, SEIU's strategies and ideas have been the subject of an even more vigorous debate -- in union halls, living rooms, in the media, and among academics and bloggers.

"The debate within SEIU has led to a growing consensus around the proposed 'Justice for All' plan that is the most ambitious and far-reaching proposal to change America any union has ever considered. It continues SEIU's focus on the priorities that are important to all working people -- fixing our broken healthcare system, giving workers a strong voice in the changing global economy, and restoring economic balance in America.

"The Justice for All proposals were unanimously adopted March 31 by the elected leaders of the union's Executive Committee. In addition, local union leaders representing more than 80 percent of SEIU's 1.9 million members have joined in affirming SEIU's commitment to changing America and to democratic and free debate.

"The debate continues about how best to take advantage of the enormous opportunity for change in our country. In the weeks ahead and at our convention in June, SEIU members will continue to discuss and decide how to best implement our strategies and win justice for all working people in America."
