This is not a union ballot, according Jeffrey Sheridan, press secretary for Gov. Wolf.
The ballot you see was mailed to a home health care worker. Gov. Wolf issued an executive order that effectively unionizes home health care workers, potentially adding millions to government union coffers. Last election cycle, government unions gave $3.4 million to Gov. Wolf's campaign.
United Home Care Workers of Pennsylvania is a joint project of two government unions, AFSCME and SEIU. On its website it self-describes as “a union.” In a mailer sent to home care workers, they offer “a special message about your union election.” (emphasis added)
“It’s not a union ballot,” Jeffrey Sheridan told the Post-Gazette. “It's just not. They’re wrong.”
Mr. Sheridan doesn't have to call it a “ballot.” He can call it a unicorn if he wants, but the fact remains that deceptive tactics are being used against those who serve some of the most vulnerable Pennsylvanians.
