Join SEIU and Fight for the Future. Open-sourcing the Union movement.
There is a place for all to join with them to fight for our future. Andy Stern and SEIU are leading the way on this today. You can post in the blog with your ideas.

SEIU is taking bigger and bigger steps, and greater and greater risks, not only in obtaining justice for more SEIU members but reshaping the rules of the world's economy and global corporations for all working people.

But -- surprise, surprise -- the global economy, and those corporate giants that salute no flag but their own company logo are far too big for any single organization to battle alone. To take the fight for our families' economic future to the next level, and, more importantly, to have a real chance to win, SEIU must open its doors, change its rules, and find ways to formally and officially link up with millions of you who are not yet SEIU members.

People have talked about this idea before -- of "open sourcing" the union movement. This is what we're beginning to think about doing under the working name of Fight for the Future -- an ambitious program to help people not represented under an SEIU contract to become part of our union."

This looks similar to the Retired Americans site by the AFL-CIO.
