FEATURED STORY: SEIU Encourages Members to Break Law


The Service Employees International Union has an organizing tactics manual for members, and the manual instructs members to dig up dirt on employers, harass employers' families, and break the law when necessary. CEI Labor Policy Counsel Vincent Vernuccio was on Fox Business and Fox News this week to expose the SEIU manual for what it is---a playbook on intimidation. Vernuccio also penned an op-ed in The Washington Times and was featured in a Washington Examiner editorial on the SEIU's controversial tactics.
