Newspaper Guild Treasurer in Pennsylvania Indicted for Thefts

cwa-logoAntonio Jordan not long ago worked for a newspaper. Now he’s getting his name in the papers. Jordan, formerly treasurer of the Erie Newspaper Guild, a union representing employees of the Erie Times-News, was indicted by a federal grand jury on May 11 for embezzling $8,767 from the Communications Workers of America affiliate. Jordan, 37, allegedly used a union-issued credit card to make unauthorized purchases during the period March 2005-February 2009. The union, also known as CWA Local 38187, is attempting to get insurance to pay for the loss.
