"We Can't Take It Anymore!" On Valentine's day February 14, 2013, hundreds of SEIU 1021 San Francisco city workers picketed the offices of Mayor Ed Lee's Department of Human Resources DHR run by union buster and privatizer Micki Callahan. After picketing and a rally the workers pushed their way into the building at 1 Van Ness and up the stairs despite the efforts of security guards to stop the delegation from visiting DHR director Callahan. Mayor Ed Lee and manager Callahan are seeking to cut the pay of many low paid workers who are women and minorities or "reverse pay equity, institute two tier wages while increasing the pay of executives as well as outsourcing city work. They also have sought to eliminate city wide seniority to use layoffs to remove senior workers and those workers that fight for union rights. SEIU members have already been taking concession on pensions and healthcare benefits pushed by the present union officials in past negotiations and many workers have lost their homes and are in dire straights. They also are having lower classification workers do higher paid classification work without equal pay for the work they do. There is also a bullying epidemic by managers and bosses against many SEIU 1021 members and other public union members in San Francisco.
