Secretive SEIU network partners with Occupy movement, raises nationwide hell

By Richard Pollack, The Daily Caller

During the past year, politically aggressive front groups founded by the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) have been partnering with regional “Occupy” groups to pressure businesses and politicians, The Daily Caller has learned.

The organizations — including This Is Our DCGood Jobs, Great HoustonGood Jobs, Better Baltimore; Detroit’s Good Jobs NowFight for PhillyOne PittsburghGood Jobs LA; and Minnesotans for a Fair Economy — employ “flash demonstrations” and other tactics to deluge their political targets with protesters, sometimes numbering in the hundreds.

TheDC first reported Monday on the secretive ties between these organizations and the SEIU. Their elaborate and sometimes lavish protests, some with expensive-looking production values, advance the giant labor union’s interests without exposing the SEIU directly to criticism from the public.
