Stern-ordered SEIU violence caught on video

SEIU-CNA Battle At Labor Notes Conference-SEIU Homecare Worker Dies

At the 2008 Labor Notes Conference in Detroit April 12, hundreds of SEIU members were bussed into the convention to protest the alleged "union busting" by CNA Executive Director Rose Ann DeMoro. This video shows some of the protest and interviews with Jim West of Labor Notes and SEIU nurse supporter Susan Horne from Ohio.

The conference participants and staff stopped the SEIU staff and supporters from entering the banquet and the police eventually forced them to leave the facility. One worker Diane Feeley who just retired from UAW 235 of American Axle had a head injury and SEIU Michigan homecare worker David Smith also passed out and died during the confrontation.
