We reported that numerous LBU officers filed charges against Judy Sheridan and Pat Kane. After months of delay the Department of Labor has opened an investigation. This is a major victory for the membership. Few charges to the DOL actually end up getting investigated. The fact that an investigation was opened proves there was enough smoke to look into the allegations.
What we know so far: financial misconduct is being investigated. The focus is lack of accountability while receiving exorbitant amounts of money. Running for office while being paid by NYSNA, and other financial maleficence. Numerous individuals have been interviewed including current and former staff. There are also allegations that some signers of the charges are being bribed to remove their names.
