Michigan SEIU Branch Allowed To Keep Millions Taken From Home Health Care Workers

 

 

 

 

 

 

” A Michigan court ruled that the state branch of the powerful Service Employees International Union does not have to pay back tens of millions of dollars in dues taken from home health care workers who were forced into unionization.

  The Michigan Court of Appeals ruled last week that the SEIU Healthcare Michigan does not have to pay back more than $34 million in dues collected from over 40,000 home health care workers. Many were forced into the union under state requirements that they join because they were taking care of sick family members at home.

  The SEIU successfully lobbied for the plan in multiple states that classified unpaid family members as “home health care workers.” Dues were then automatically collected from the care recipients’ Medicare or Medicaid checks. “
