The National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation this morning said it will file a complaint with the Federal Election Commission that challenges the legality of a political fundraising policy the foundation says that SEIU adopted at its summer convention.
The policy sets up fines for union locals that fail to meet the political fundraising targets, and that's illegal, the foundation says.
We called folks at SEIU Local 1000 for comment. Spokesman Jim Zamora said that officials are looking into the complaint and will have a comment for us soon.
We're also working to get a copy of the complaint, which will be formally filed on Monday, from what we understand. We'll pass along when it comes in. In the meantime, you can read the foundation's press release by clicking here.
