Former President of San Diego-Area NTEU Local Sentenced

NTEU logoOn August 5, Harold Washington, former president of National Treasury Employees Union Chapter 105, was sentenced in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California to one year of probation and ordered to pay a $100 fine for embezzling more than $38,000 from the Chula Vista union and falsifying financial reports to conceal the thefts. He had been charged on April 24, later pleading guilty that day. Washington previously had paid full restitution. The actions follow a joint probe by the U.S. Labor Department’s Office of Labor-Management Standards and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Office of Professional Responsibility and Customs and Border Protection.
