McLoughlin Take 2: Sch’dy schools CSEA members were ripped off

Text Size: A | A

Memo to the Civil Service Employees Association: Why not do the decent thing and reimburse all dues to the 100-plus members of Steve Raucci’s school district bargaining unit? Or, at the very least, why not give them free pot-holders with the union logo or some other suitable trinkets because CSEA not only FAILED to represent them but actually worked AGAINST its own dues-paying workers? Yes, we got reminded again this week of that beautiful chapter ...

Why is Danny Donahue not being indicted? Sounds like a RICO case to me. Where is the FBI?

This is why all current CSEA workers should vote NO on this AWFUL contract they are being asked to ratified. We have people like Kathy Garrison and Danny Donahue running CSEA who haven't got a clue. Donahue sold us down the river on this contract..I agree, they should be held to a higher standard. I think it's laziness on their part...they don't want to do anything out of the ordinary.

I too..as a 29 year NYS employee and CSEA member.. was "blown off" personally by Danny Donohue & Kathy Garrison in 2008 in a desperate plea to desist my employer from retaliating against me when reporting security breaches in my Agency to the NYS Department of Civil Service Suggestion Committee in 2007

I retired on disability retirement upon turning 55 last year last year due to the severe physical & emotional damage that I encountered during this 3 year long difficult period in my life

the Raucci incident IS NOT ISOLATED & would have never gotten so out of control if the CSEA OWNED UP to their responsibilities to their members...THERE IS A PATTERN HERE

Mr McLoughlin I am available anytime to discuss my story with you with proof in hand....

Another day I gotta agree with wmarincic - this DOES sound like a RICO case: shakedowns, bribes, coercion, conspiracies.

robbump...because...at this time...Danny Donohue thinks that HE IZ INVINCIBLE...these damaging practices have become part of the norm and belief that NO ONE CAN touch the Union..I fear that there is a Cuomo connection & this whole contract issue is just a ruse

hopefully the Raucci case is just the beginning of the story...yes he deserves prison time but he wuz ALLOWED to carry on his viscious bullying tactics for far too long...there are many other "Rauccis" out there as well as "helpless victims" abandoned by their Union..we desparately need someone to seriously look into and stop this pattern of abuse and injustice...
