Trustee may take helm of union local in dispute

New York Times, January 23, 2009
Officials with the Service Employees International Union announced they would appoint a trustee to run a 150,000-member healthcare local in California unless the local obeyed the parent union's decision within five days to move thousands of members into another local. The union's executive board made the threat on the day that Ray Marshall, who was labor secretary in the Carter administration, ruled that the leaders of the United Healthcare Workers-West had engaged "in financial malpractice and undermined democratic procedures."
