Union Busted

I’m catching up on a few items, but Dana Harris on our sister blog, Scribe Vibe, reported yesterday that the studios’ new PR strategist firm of Fabiani & Lehane lost a consulting gig with a coalition of unions for taking the pro-management work.

A spokesman for Change to Win, a grouping of seven unions including SEIU, the Teamsters and the Laborers, said “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.”

Jane Hamsher on firedoglake.com quotes SEIU’s Andy Stern: “By the end of the week, I believe Chris Lehane will have no union clients because of his work for the AMPTP. His days are numbered in the labor movement.”
