One's Observations

A collection of some things I observe along the way.

Stern’s operating philosophy: “[W]e prefer to use the power of persuasion, but if that doesn’t work we use the persuasion of power.”

"The leader of the largest and fastest-growing union in North America, Stern will have a prime seat at the table—and the ears of key lawmakers—in upcoming debates on everything from major new labor legislation to the economic recovery plan to health-care reform."

"As president of the Service Employees International Union (SEIU), Stern leads more than two million service workers. These nurses, bus drivers and janitors make up the heart of the modern service economy, one that doesn’t always sync with a labor movement built in the industrial age."

"That makes Stern an influential, and sometimes controversial, leader. He led the SEIU out of an alliance with the AFL-CIO, a powerful union umbrella organization. He’s demanding nothing less than a new direction for the labor movement in the 21st century economy." (Who Runs Government Profile)

"Andy Stern rallied the Illinois delegation to the 2008 Democratic National Convention in August 2008 with an impassioned salute to the working man Flanking Stern on stage at the Denver celebration: Chicago political machine kingpins Rahm Emanuel and Richard Daley. Stern roared about “rebalancing power between wealth and work” to “make sure everyone shares in the wealth of a growing economy.” Echoing Obama’s 2007 speech to the SEIU political action conference, union boss Stern condemned the old way of doing business and called on American to “turn the page” on behalf of hard-working Americans and their families."
