Mariam Noujaim vs Union Of California State Workers dba
SEIU Local 1000
Superior Court Of the State Of California
Case No: 34-2014-80001874
Repeated attempts by Union Transparency members to push labor representatives, officers and board members to disclose expenses voluntarily have been met with resistance. On October 15, 2014, a member of the SEIU Local 1000 filed a lawsuit demanding financial transparency.
Among the requests:
- an accounting of car allowances
- disclosure of housing allowances and mortgage payments
- an accounting of travel expenses: airfare, lodging and meals
- an accounting of clothing allowances
- the accounting books and records of credit card expense reports
- an accounting and records of salaries, wages, bonuses, per diem travel expenses and any other benefit paid to a state employee on union leave
- an accounting of any expenses incurred in connection with quarterly board meetings, including, travel, lodging, food and meeting costs
Union Transparency supports member efforts to know how their dues are being spent.
