Missourians who are members of the Service Employees International Union probably won’t notice much change as a result of this week’s decision by the SEIU to split with the AFL-CIO. As many as 10,000 Missourians are members of the Service Employees International Union – most of them hired as janitors, some working in nursing homes, and others employed in various public sector jobs. The SEIU’s Nancy Cross says we’ll see a greater emphasis on attracting new members into existing locals, instead of creating new locals. Cross says that while the AFL-CIO wants to organize workers from different shops into several different locals, the SEIU wants to put people within the same industries under the same umbrella. Cross says members will still go to work each day, paying the same union dues they’ve been paying up to this point.
