Stern in a letter sent to the 150,000 member local listed a whole series of "alleged" charges including helping to oppose a raid by SEIU leader Dennis Rivera of teachers in Puerto Rico and meeting privately with the CNA leadership at a California AFL-CIO meeting in San Diego. The homecare membership also voted by over 90% not to merge with a homecare local led by Stern operative Tyrone Freeman.
