SEIU - SF Janitors To Picket Union Hall & Andy Sterns House by Bay Area Workers Democracy Network (415)861-6810

SF janitors on will picket their union hall on August 28th to prostest the SEIU international trusteeship and the refusal to fight the bosses

Justice for Nagi Daifullah!

Justice For SF Janitors!

All janitors join together to memorialize Nagi Daifullah. Nagi was murdered by the police for standing up for workers rights on the farms in California. At the same time, janitors and their labor and democratic rights are being attacked right here in San Francisco.

San Francisco janitors SEIU Local 87 has been put in trusteeship by SEIU Pres. Andy Stern. This trusteeship was imposed because the International does not want the San Francisco janitors to have a democratic vote on whether to merge with SEIU Local 1877.


*Today, International Trustee Triana Selton is allowing the dispatching of members of SEIU Local 87 to janitorial jobs at .15 an hour. This is below the city’s living wage law and also is below the basic wage of SEIU 87 contracts which is .25 an hour. IS THIS JUSTICE ?

*In a violation of senority, contractors such as One Source, ABM and ABLE are harassing members and illegally tranferring members out of buildings. The SEIU trusteeship is refusing to file grievances for member and charges with the NLRB. Local 87 member Anna Ortiz with over 7 years senority was illegally moved from 525 Market to another building. Local 87 trustees have refused to file grievances in this overt violation of the contract. This inaction is also weakening the union in the upcoming contract fight next year. If we don’t fight to defend the contract now, how will we defend it when it expires? Also in the past, the International accused former Pres. Richard Leung of failure to represent the members. What is the difference today? IS THIS JUSTICE?

*The Trustees have eliminated the monthly membership union meetings of SEIU Local 87.


*The trustees have hand picked a Local 87 committee to investigate a merger between Local 87 and Local 1877. Members should have the right to an elected investigation committee and the right to vote on any merger. Their hand picked committee is also filled with three members of the Loaiza family. Is this a representative committee or is this a "family committee"?

*The International is increasing dues for the next five years without a vote of the rank and file membership. IS THIS JUSTICE AND DEMOCRACY?

*The hiring hall should be 100% in the union hall so that there can be no discrimination and violation of senority rights and discrimination because of age. WE NEED JUSTICE NOW!

*Buidlings such as 400 Sansome and 753 Front St. are going non-union and the trustees are refusing to moblize the membership against this open union busting. IS THIS JUSTICE?

SEIU are Union Busters

Sunday August 25, 2002 at 03:24 AM

National Union of Security Professionals (NUSP) Organizers Openly Admit they are Really Union - Busters Financed by the SEIU, AFL-CIO

Labor Note News Release 2002

Warren, MI - August 23, 2002 - The National Union Security Professionals (NUSP) a phony upstart security officers union invented by the Prewitt Organizing Fund a labor consulting firm from Washington, DC openly admitted to more then 75 GM/Delphi Pinkerton Security officers from three states, that they were being financed by (SEIU) Service Employees International Union AFL-CIO.

Rick Matthews a Prewitt Organizing Fund lead organizer admitted when asked by the group of Pinkerton officers who were pressuring Matthews to reveal the real source behind the financing of this union busting campaign against Pinkerton Officers he admitted, it was the "SEIU"

Mathews continued to tell the officers that Prewitt Organizing Fund president, Duane Stillwell had invented the National Union of Security Officers ( NUSP )as a front for the SEIU, AFL-CIO in their attempt to steal members from the International Union of Security, Police and Fire Professionals Union (SPFPA) who presently represents these Pinkerton officers under a National collective bargaining agreement in three states.

Mathews explained, because the SEIU, AFL-CIO were prohibited by labor law under section 9 (b) (3) of the National Labor Relations Act from being certified as representatives of security officers because they admit into their membership non - guard members "janitors", the SEIU could only file an election by using a phoney front organization created by the Prewitt Organizing Fund ( NUSP ).then later once certified NUSP would affiliate with SEIU.

Joe Martin another Prewitt Organizing Fund / NUSP organizer had admitted at a early meeting that the SEIU's involvement in the Pinkerton union busting drive stemmed from SPFPA's organizing drive of 425 officers in Seattle Washington. On August 15, 2002, the National Labor Relations Board had issued a formal complaint against the SEIU documented under case numbers 19-CP-526 and 19-CB-8856 that on June 29th 2002, the SEIU local 24/7, by Michael Baratz, had threatened a Seattle security employer Northwest Protective Service, inc. with picketing if Northwest did not withdraw its recognition of SPFPA. The SEIU had engaged in the threat under circumstances where SEIU did not represent the unit and could not lawfully raise a question concerning representation or a valid petition being filed within a reasonable period of time from the threat.

The International Union, Security, Police and Fire Professionals of America (SPFPA) have represented security professionals for over 50 years and is the largest and most experienced International Union specializing in Security in the world today.
