Gallagher has determined that the law firm Trenton Metro Area Local uses is an exercise in “Terrible Judgment”.
“My Opponent: Terrible Judgment”
”He has keep on an attorney for his Local and the NJ State organization for years that represented a lawsuit against the former Eastern Region Coordinator. This lawsuit was defended against by the APWU. This lawsuit was finally withdrawn but it cost our dues paying members $44,844.58 to defend against.”
The lawsuit he is referring too was a private matter between two indivuals and had nothing to do with the Trenton Local or Bill Lewis. If I used “terrible judgment” so have many other Great locals within the APWU that have used the same law firm.
Gallagher has determined the following locals also use “terrible judgment” by using the same law firm, Philadelphia Area Local, Pennsylvania Postal Workers Union, Red Bank Local, NJ Jersey Shore Area Local, Central Jersey Area Local and NJ MidState Area Local. Many members have used the law firm through the APWU’s Voluntary Benefits program. All locals should give serious consideration of how Gallagher views their choices of providing representation to their membership.
