Former President of Boston-Area Government Employees Local Admits to Larceny

nage-seiu-logoOn November 17, Joseph Morana, former president of National Association of Government Employees (NAGE) Local 01-86, admitted in District Court of Brockton, Massachusetts to a finding of sufficient facts to the charge of larceny. He was ordered to serve up to two years of supervised probation, and to pay $7,696.48 in restitution to the West Roxbury union plus a special assessment of $90. NAGE is an affiliate of the Service Employees International Union. Admitting to a “finding of facts” amounts to a guilty plea, though without using the word “guilty.” The action follows an investigation by the U.S. Labor Department’s Office of Labor-Management Standards.
