SEIU Battle with CNA Gets Deadly

During the SEIU's April 12th melee at the Labor Notes conference in Dearborn, Michigan, it was widely reported that a retired UAW member and conference attendee was knocked to the ground and suffered a head wound that required medical attention.

What hasn't been widely reported is that the SEIU's "rally" also led to the death of one of its own members. SEIU member David Smith apparently collapsed and later died on April 12th.

Based on its website posting, it does not appear the SEIU will be taking any responsibility for its member's death, which leaves one to wonder if Mr. Smith's family has retained counsel yet.
