Despite the repeated establishment of financial safeguards to prevent it from ever happening again, wily union officers keep finding ways to steal money from their local treasuries.
This week’s allegations involve the Union City Education Association in New Jersey, which after discovering “significant discrepancies and irregularities” in its financial records, had its attorney send a letter to its former treasurer demanding the return of 25 years’ worth of documents. The union posted the correspondence on its web site.
Meanwhile in New York, the Guilderland Teachers Association filed a police report claiming embezzlement of union funds. The union president would not identify the culprit, only saying it was a member of the local. The treasurer’s post is currently vacant.
