    Three SEIU Locals--Including Chicago Chapter--Waived From Obamacare Requirement
    Monday, January 24, 2011

    (CNSNews.com) – Three local chapters of the Service Employees International Union (SEIU), whose political action committee spent $27 million supporting Barack Obama in the 2008 presidential election, have received temporary waivers from a provision in the Obamacare law.
    The three SEIU chapters include the Local 25 in Obama’s hometown of Chicago.


    So far, the Obama administration has issued waivers to 222 entities, including businesses, unions and charitable organizations. Of that total, 45 were labor organizations.

    A total of 1,507,418 enrollees are now included in the waivers. More than one-third -- 512,315 – of the enrollees affected were insured by union health plans.
