On February 5, Aphrodite Ueberroth, former office manager for Iron Workers Local 55, was indicted in Lucas County (Ohio) Common Pleas Court on one count of aggravated theft from the Toledo-based union in an amount of between $150,000 and $750,000, two counts of falsifying union financial records, six counts of forgery, and one count of receiving stolen property in an amount of between $1,000 and $7,500. While no further details are available on this case, it is of potential significance that her husband, Shawn Ueberroth, a Local 55 member, died in November 2018. The charges follow an investigation by the U.S. Labor Department’s Office of Labor-Management Standards.
Postscript: Aphrodite Ueberroth died on October 17, 2020. No cause of death was given.
