    Has anyone here been a member of the SEIU? I was wondering how they treat its members.

    I can't speak to SEIU specifically, but just the way you phrased the question bothers me. It shouldn't be an us and them situation. Unfortunately most people just want others to do stuff for them. As a long time (former) union member and shop steward, I can tell you it was not a lot of fun listening to people complain about the way "we" or "the union" treated them. Yet when we had union meetings almost no one would show up. Not once at an executive board meeting did anyone show up to see what we did or look at the books (the books are open for any member to see for themselves how the money is spent, no secrets, but people would rather complain than actually see whats going on) or give any input. Most of the local executive positions went to the same people simply because they ran unopposed. No one bothered to even run for office.

    My point being, a union will be, in large part, what you make of it.
