look for the code words: They have embedded themselves with the Occupy movement, the 99%ers.

Incorporated by the SEIU as local non-profits, the groups are waging concerted local political campaigns to publicly attack conservative political figures, banks, energy companies and other corporations.
Each local group has portrayed itself as an independent community organization not tied to any special interest. But they were founded, incorporated, and led by SEIU personnel.
The individual activist groups use benign-sounding names including This Is Our DC; Good Jobs, Great Houston; Good Jobs, Better Baltimore; Good Jobs Now in Detroit; Fight for Philly; One Pittsburgh; Good Jobs LA; and Minnesotans for a Fair Economy

At least one of the websites, “One Pittsburgh,” provides a list of 14 “coalition partners,” including the NAACP, the Sierra Club, Clean Water Action, and locals of the United Food and Commercial Workers and an Ironworkers union affiliated with the AFL-CIO. The SEIU is among that list, making its role appear minor.

“If this union is playing a major role in the governance, policy and politics of the organization, it should not be hidden. It should be up-front about this,” Borochoff added.

Have you seen the pictures of The LA Mayday Rally 2011, the ones of SEIU, their signs, shirts, etc? They admitted their allegiance "in your face" sorta thing.

I don't really give a crap, since my dues also go towards protecting our interests as employees... and I never get involved with the political side of our union (SEIU 521), I only call on them when something is amiss at work. And guess what? They actually help, and get things done pretty darned quickly! I don't like the fact that we're forced to join, but I do like having them on my side as a public employee.

P.S. They don't hide their agenda, in fact this current issue is stated quite clearly on the website's homepage.
