      SEIU has thrown its support into the Fight for 15 low wage worker movement which would have a direct effect on Uptown if successful. Neither SEIU nor AFSCME has any love for Rahm though.

      Your point about development definitely applies to the construction trades which one union electrician told me are "firmly in Rahm's pocket."
