From the desk of Stephen Cabot: Always on the lookout for new targets of opportunity, the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) is planning a nation-wide attack on fast food restaurants.
According to news reports of a leaked internal memo, the SEIU is planning a major effort to organize fast food workers throughout the country. Such an effort, if successful, will not only significantly increase consumer prices, but may also result in a drastic drop of stock prices, for the majority of fast food restaurant are publicly held companies. The walkouts and strikes that could occur would be devastating to bottom line profits.
The Cabot Institute’s series of Labor Relations Seminars will be offering effective strategies for defeating union organizing efforts. For the fast food industry to remain union free, it must initiate a series of steps that have proven successful in keeping unions out. The industry cannot be reactive; it must be proactive, and it must act now!
