Embattled Local 1549 President Expelled From Union by Oversight Panel

The president of the union representing New York’s City’s public sector clerical workers was expelled and ordered to repay members more than $30,000 for a car service he had used to go to and from work, following a ruling by an oversight panel.  

Labor chief Eddie Rodriguez improperly used member dues from District Council 37’s Local 1549 to splurge on the black car service from his Rockland County home to the union’s office in Manhattan’s Financial District more than 100 times since March 2020 in violation of union’s financial code, American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME) judicial panel chairperson Carla Insinga ruled Jan. 11. 

“Eddie Rodriguez is found guilty of violating Article V of the AFSCME Financial Standards Code and the improper or illegal use of union funds,” Insinga wrote. “Pursuant to Article X, Section 15 of the International Constitution he is expelled from membership.”
