Yesterday, SEIU Local 99 in Los Angeles — which covers education workers who include teacher’s aids, cafeteria workers and crossing guards — fired Chris Lehane (of the AMPTP PR team Fabiani & Lehane) from a consulting contract. This morning, Jane Hamsher posted on her site firedoglake.com:

“By the end of the week, I believe Chris Lehane will have no union clients because of his work for the AMPTP,” says SEIU President Andy Stern, who confirms that all Change to Win Unions are severing ties with Lehane. “His days are numbered in the labor movement.”

Now we just got word from Daily Kos that Lehane has indeed been fired by Change to Win, a coalition of seven top unions  that includes SEIU, the Teamsters, and the Laborers.

A statement by a CtW spokesman:

Change to Win had a general consulting contract with Chris Lehane. That contract was terminated upon discovery of his role supporting the studios in the writers guild strike. As you know, Change to Win and its affiliates stand solidly behind the writers in their struggle for fairness, so we did not think twice about this decision.
