Specific details have surfaced about the research that went into a now-tabled proposal to increase the pay of SEIU Local 1000 officers.
According to a 13-page rough draft of a PowerPoint presentation that was going to be given at the local's Sept. 16-19 council meeting in Oakland, the researchers looked at wages paid for comparable positions and checked IRS rules before proposing to pay Local 1000's president $150,000 per year and $125,000 per year to each of its three vice presidents.
(Our first report on the proposal referenced the research and legal vetting the plan received, but the PowerPoint goes into great detail.)
The plan riled up rank-and-file members once it became widely known, however, and Local 1000 President Yvonne Walker asked to have it pulled from the Oakland agenda. The presentation, acquired by The State Worker and confirmed as authentic by the union, was never brought to the council.
