Of course, before Janus, union officials could always count on a stash of forced dues to make up the deficit left by corrupt individuals’ embezzlement or theft. Mike Antonucci has the story on Intercepts.
From a National Education Association disclosure report to the U.S. Department of Labor, November 2017:
“NEA suffered a $6,401 loss over the three-year period from January 2014 through January 2017 due to the actions of two former employees, which were discovered in January 2017. Both employees were terminated immediately upon confirmation of the loss, and did not make full restitution to NEA. NEA has taken an array of corrective actions to prevent any recurrence including strengthening its internal financial controls.”
From a National Education Association disclosure report to the U.S. Department of Labor, November 2018:
“During its reporting year, NEA discovered losses in the total amount of $40,223.98 due to the actions of five individuals. NEA recovered $29,440.53 in payments from those individuals in restitution for those amounts. Four individuals made full restitution to NEA for the losses in question. One individual did not do so and has resigned from NEA employment.”
