It’s one thing for Carla Katz to intervene as a private citizen. I heard she convinced the Executive Board of Local 1034 to finance this court action. If that is the case the members should all call Local 1034, at 609-530-0060, and express their outrage. If that is the case they should also contact each Executive Board member that agreed to fund intervention in the Tom Wilson lawsuit and share their feelings about their union dues being used in this manner.
The next election for officers and the Executive Board of Local 1034 is in the fall of 2008. Lucky for Carla, her fellow officers and Board members it isn’t in the fall of 2007. Plenty of time for damage control for a politico like Carla.
The last time 1034 had an election, she and her slate were unopposed. I doubt that will happen in 2008. That might explain her stated intention to run for re-election when she was interviewed by gossip columnist Cindy Adams of the NY Post. She must be getting nervous about her re-election chances.
