Sixel: Chicago "organizing" tactics extend to Houston

CHRON COLUMNIST L.M. SIXEL reports that all those SEIU employees that have been much more "organized" in Houston in recent years are "represented by the Service Employees International Union Local 1 in Chicago." Sixel also notes that Chicago "organizers" temporarily relocated to Houston three years ago when SEIU was making its big push here (by shipping in bodies to protest outside buildings and disrupt busy intersections).

Perhaps my memory is faulty, but I don't remember local media reporting the Chicago origins of SEIU's "local" organizing several years ago. Do you?

UPDATE (11/11/09): Unca Darrell posts on SEIU and the current Houston mayoral race.
