SEIU fined nearly $200K for concealing it backed a MI ballot proposal

By Jack Spencer | Michigan Capitol Confidential

The Service Employees International Union, the labor group behind the home health care dues skim, has been fined $199,000 for concealing that it bankrolled Proposal 4 in 2012, which would have locked a forced unionization scheme into the state constitution.

The fine for campaign finance violations is the second-largest ever levied in Michigan, according to a press release from the secretary of state’s office.

Between 2006 and when the dues skim finally ended in early 2013, the SEIU took more than $34 million from home-based caregivers, most of whom were taking care of family and friends.
