Source Watch: Ex-VSEA Employee's Letter Calling for Dismissal of Union Chief

Posted By on Thu, Oct 11, 2012 at 1:11 PM

In this week's dead-tree edition of Seven Days we brought you a story about the tumultuous tenure of Vermont State Employees Association executive director Mark Mitchell.

In the past five weeks, six of the union's 19 staffers have left — and several told Seven Days that Mitchell's the reason. Meanwhile, the new boss' defenders say Mitchell is doing exactly what he was hired to do: strengthen the 5200-member union and fight hard for state workers.

We first heard about the brouhaha when we got our mitts on this letter to the union's board of trustees. It was penned by former VSEA senior field representative Lucinda Kirk, who recently left the union to work for the state. Check it out for yourself:
