SEIU Purple Army blunder of the day

Never mind…

SEIU bosses got their members and local citizens in Hastings PA all worked up about an evil shale driller in their neighborhood. They organized a noisy picket, demanding that the driller pay more taxes and staging a theatrical tollbooth display in order to collect.

Only…there’s no shale drilling going on in their neighborhood. And there won’t be.

SEIU stands for Sorry, Error in Unionizing!

Oooooops:

When union workers and environmental activists picked a Hastings-area site to protest inaction on a Marcellus Shale severance tax, they made one mistake.

Marcellus activity isn’t occurring within miles of it.

Service Employees International Union officials issued an apology Monday, saying they mistakenly set up their protest Thursday – and a makeshift tollbooth asking the industry to pay its fair share – next to a surface well property that has been around for years and isn’t set up for shale drilling.

…The union, with environmental officials and area parents, set up protests at three western Pennsylvania sites Thursday to urge for the shale drilling industry to pay its fair share.

Bhaerman said local workers from an area nursing home told them about an apparent drilling site near Third Avenue, just outside of Hastings, and the union didn’t do enough homework on it.

A permit search Monday by the Mirror showed no Marcellus gas permits approved within several miles of the site.

Question: If hapless SEIU members collected sick pay while on protest duty, will they have to give it back now?

Question: If the drillers are evil, aren’t all the Pennsylvania-based companies that manufacture drilling equipment and employ untold numbers of Americans evil, too?
