From the press release:
"Local 2 has seen its membership of SEIU employees drop from 133 in 2009 to 55 today. The sharp decline is a direct result of the misclassification of new hires as “managers” and outsourcing work to non-union consultants. SEIU staff is now made up of 70% managers as SEIU’s leadership has systematically cut the number of union staff positions in favor of at-will managerial bloat and consultants in order to circumvent placing positions in the bargaining unit. According to financial disclosures with the Department of Labor, SEIU has spent almost $45 million combined on outsourcing work in the last two years."
