    RNs Condemn Violent Service Union Attack at Michigan Event - Business Wire
    'If I were a nurse here I would not join such an aggressive union,' said Prudencia Mweemba, an RN from Zambia who is a PhD candidate at Kent State who was attending the conference. 'What they did today showed me they are irresponsible. I don't see how they can represent people with such an attitude.'

    'Had I not seen this with my own eyes I would not have believed it,' said Kimberly Helmick, an Ohio RN. 'SEIU did a big injustice to all the labor movement people who were here.'

    DeMoro noted that irony of the attack on a conference, in which union democracy was a major topic, coinciding with growing efforts by Stern and SEIU International to suppress dissent in his own union and signing contracts with employers that limit the voice of SEIU members at the workplace.
