Lowdown on NWU Embezzlement
"Two employees wrote themselves checks for more than $60,000. They were both indicted; one, a staffer, remains in jail, the other, a temp sent by an employment agency, is out on bail. Next court appearance is January 18 in New York Superior Court."
The source doesn't think this bears on the NWU's role in the class action settlement. I agree, to a point. Continuing the insider account: "The embezzlement was clearly a failure of management. The key to an automatic check-signing machine was not secured. (The machine is no longer in use and handwritten signatures are required.) The union's volunteer finance committee discovered the theft and blew the whistle. No officers have been charged with anything."
