    SEIU Workers Go On Strike Over Job Cuts Related To Obamacare…

    SEIU Workers Go On Strike Over Job Cuts Related To Obamacare…

    Posted on 26 September, 2013 by Amy



    via weasel zippers

    Members of the Columbus, Ohio-based Service Employees International Union Local 1 have gone on strike over recent job cuts by a janitorial company called Professional Maintenance.

    The reason for the cuts? The employer says it is because of the Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare. This is ironic since SEIU is a major supporter of the law.

    Tyler French, Local 1′s organizing director, told Mediatrackers Ohio the company claimed it had to cut its employees’ hours due to Obamacare mandates.

    French did not believe the explanation though, calling it the “latest excuse in a long line of many that we’ve seen from corporate America.”

    But others throughout the organized labor movement have warned that such actions will be a direct consequence of the President Obama’s health care law.

    SEIU unionists strike over Obamacare-related cuts

    Members of the Chicago-based Service Employees International Union Local 1 have gone on strike over recent job cuts by a janitorial company called Professional Maintenance.

    The reason for the cuts? The employer says it is because of the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare. This is ironic since SEIU is a major supporter of the law.

    Tyler French, Local 1's organizing director, told Mediatrackers Ohio the company claimed it had to cut its employees' hours due to Obamacare mandates.

    French did not believe the explanation, though, calling it the “latest excuse in a long line of many that we’ve seen from corporate America.”

    At the AFL-CIO's convention in Los Angeles earlier this month, Loretta Johnson, secretary-treasurer of the American Federation of Teachers, said it was already happening in her union.

    "We are seeing employer after employer cut hours so as to avoid the 30-hour definition of a full-time job," Johnson said. The AFL-CIO passed a resolution demanding either Congress or Obama fix the law to stop it from hurting union members.

    Under Obamacare, once a person works more than 30 hours a week, that person counts toward the requirement that companies provide insurance if they have more than 50 employees.

    SEIU enthusiastically backed Obamacare when it passed and remains a booster of the law today. Earlier this month, it announced that it was sending nurses, doctors and other health care professionals out to promote the law in 30 cities over the coming months.

    They need to learn that you have to be very careful about what you want because sometimes you get it.

    They are not special and they will have to live with it like everyone else if Harry Reid gets 60 votes for cloture.

    SEIU MEMBERS STRIKE OVER JOB CUTS CAUSED BY OBAMACARE



    by TONY LEE 28 Sep 2013 256 POST A COMMENT
    Service Employees International Union (SEIU) members in Chicago have gone on strike after a janitorial company cut some union jobs and hours because of Obamacare, a law the SEIU supported.

    Tyler French, the organizing director of SEIU Local 1 in Chicago, said a janitorial company called "Professional Maintenance" cut the jobs and hours.
    Under Obamacare's employer mandate, which was delayed for a year, companies that employ 50 or more full-time employees will have to provide insurance to employees who work 30 hours or more a week--which is how Obamacare defines full-time employees--or pay hefty fines.
    French, though, told Mediatrackers that he felt the company used Obamacare as the “latest excuse in a long line of many that we’ve seen from corporate America.”
    Due to similar job cuts around the country, unions have been asking the Obama administration for special exemptions to the Obamacare law they had previously supported.
