CAIR vs SEIU: Battle of the BULLIES

29

Let me preface this by saying that I love this story.

SEIU, Service Employees International Union Local 500, filed a charge of unfair labor practices against the Council on American-Islamic Relations. It’s a defining pig flying moment.

The union attempting to organize the national headquarters of the Council on American-Islamic Relations says the Muslim civil rights group has fired three staffers in an effort to undermine the labor group’s bid.

The notorious hard-left labor union,  SEIU, has, for years, been the running dogs for terror-tied Islamic supremacists like CAIR who seek to impose sharia regulations in the workplace. Just this week, SEIU fronted for Muslim supremacists demanding sharia enforcement at Amazon.

There is a crack in the red/green alliance. Which is good, that’s how the light gets in.

CAIR says the union is spreading “misinformation.”

CAIR falsely claiming “misinformation” wreaks of their “misunderstanders of Islam” narrative. Lies, lies lies.

SEIU is fighting for Islamic supremacism in the marketplace, but now that SEIU is trying to unionize employees at terror-tied CAIR offices, CAIR’s supremacist leadership said, not so fast, kuffar. And a fight is raging.

The “vote [to unionize] was postponed because there is so much union busting going on over there that it is impossible to have a fair election,” said  SEIU Local 500 spokesman Christopher Honey. “The whole things seems totally antithetical to what they do with their work at CAIR.” Really, Mr Honey, you have no idea what they “are doing over there.” The Maryland-based Service Employees International Union Local 500 filed a charge of unfair labor practices against the Council on American-Islamic Relations — alleging that the Islamic civil rights group denied union organizers access to the workplace, made threatening and coercive statements to workers ahead of a planned organizing vote and fired at least three employees for attempting to organize workers.

A spokesman for SEIU Local 500 told Fox News that the filing and the delay of the vote on Monday was necessary because of the atmosphere of “intimidation and fear” at CAIR. Tell us more about the “intimidation and fear” at CAIR. Ibrahim Hooper, CAIR’s sultan of chutzpah, said, “CAIR has remained neutral throughout this process and respects the free choice of employees. We look forward to the election going forward as soon as possible.” CAIR insists it’s a religious group, and Islamic group, and does not have to adhere to the rules and regulations of regular, secular orgs. They say they’re a civil rights group except when they ain’t.

CAIR has argued to the NLRB that it is a religious organization and exempt from the National Labor Relations Act. But earlier this month, a regional administrator at the NLRD disagreed when ruling that CAIR was “more akin to a secular civil rights group” and therefore its workers were free to unionize – a ruling that CAIR has so far rejected.So CAIR says they are a civil rights group except when they ain’t. Whichever works to fool the kuffar.

SEIU is surprised at CAIR, and I think CAIR is surprised at labor.

“Like hey bro, u my bro, whaddup?”

Labor group levels charges of union busting against Muslim rights organization

Fox News, April 22, 2017:

The nation’s largest Muslim advocacy organization has been hit with charges of union busting amid a row with a labor union attempting to organize its Washington, D.C., staff.

The Maryland-based Service Employees International Union Local 500 filed a charge of unfair labor practices against the Council on American-Islamic Relations — alleging that the Islamic civil rights group denied union organizers access to the workplace, made threatening and coercive statements to workers ahead of a planned organizing vote and fired at least three employees for attempting to organize workers.

The charges — which delayed the scheduled Monday workplace organizing vote by CAIR’s staff scheduled — were filed with the National Labor Relations Board, the United States main federal labor law enforcement agency. The filings were posted on the NLRB’s website, but the actual complaint from the SEIU Local 500 has not been made public.
More on this…

A spokesman for SEIU Local 500 told Fox News that the filing and the delay of the vote on Monday was necessary because of the atmosphere of “intimidation and fear” at CAIR.

“The vote was postponed because there is so much union busting going on over there that it is impossible to have a fair election,” said SEIU Local 500 spokesman Christopher Honey. “The whole things seems totally antithetical to what they do with their work at CAIR.”

In a statement provided to Fox News, CAIR called the charges leveled against the organization “meritless” and said it “strongly supports the organized labor movement.” The communications director at CAIR, Ibrahim Hooper, did not answer Fox News’ question of whether or not the organization supported its own workers unionizing and instead referred back to CAIR’s statement.

“CAIR has remained neutral throughout this process and respects the free choice of employees,” the statement said. “We look forward to the election going forward as soon as possible.”

CAIR was formed in 1994 under the auspices of working to promote social, legal and political activism among Muslims in America. Over the years the group has had to fend off numerous charges that it is pursuing an Islamist agenda.

While SEIU Local 500 asserts that they filed charges and delayed the vote because of intimidation tactics on the part of CAIR management, Hooper implied that the union wanted a delay because they didn’t have enough votes to actually unionize. If successful, SEIU Local 500 would represent between 17 and 20 non-management employees at CAIR’s Washington D.C. office.

“The vote was not stopped by any action on our part,” Hooper said. “There is only one reason I believe the union would want to delay the vote.”

SEIU Local 500 attests that last October they begin the push to unionize after being approached by CAIR employees who told the union they had a majority of employees in support of going that route.

“We went in with the majority of cards on our side,” Honey said.

CAIR has argued to the NLRB that it is a religious organization and exempt from the National Labor Relations Act. But earlier this month, a regional administrator at the NLRD disagreed when ruling that CAIR was “more akin to a secular civil rights group” and therefore its workers were free to unionize – a ruling that CAIR has so far rejected.

“Our allies and supporters should know that this situation has little to do with organizing and employee choice, which we support, and everything to do with the method by which it happens, as well as with protecting CAIR’s legal identity as an American Muslim civil rights organization,” the group said in a statement
