Below you see an excerpt from an Audit of SEIU Non-Germane expenses paid by SEIU Members. As you can see there is a good deal of money that can be saved by Filing a Non-Germane Objector form, and Challenging the expenses SEIU incurs with members dues.
According to the Audit summary (pg 18), up to 74.69% of Monthly dues was spent on Non-Chargeable (Non-Germane) expenses by SEIU.

Although the data shown is specific to the SEIU CTW Union, and the audit date Dec. 2008, it still demonstrates that there is a wide margin of Non-Germane expenses that can be incurred by SEIU for non-Union business. Numbers specific to SEIU Local 1000 are most likely different.
