Mariam Noujaim, an SEIU Local 1000 member who contends her union lacks transparency, plans to continue her efforts to see more of its financial records.
In a summary of what she found during her recent inspection of the local’s records, Noujaim says she doesn’t believe she was given access to all of the documents she requested. She also contends she was shorted an hour of inspection time and that the exercise itself, conducted in a Sacramento hotel meeting room, symbolized the wastefulness of the union.
“This inspection is not to our satisfaction,” Noujaim wrote. “We will be conferring with our lawyer on how to proceed to have full transparency of our dues.”
