Breaking News...This Just In. The Board of Trustees has terminated Mr. Joesph Epstein as Executive Director of the Benefit Funds. Epstein was hired in July 2011, and has restructured the Funds’ office and filled most key positions.

It is expected the Board will issues a statement by Monday.

  4. The majority of the Unity Team is dead. Only a few stragglers in big fat positions are left and they are left alone to collect huge salaries and benefits while being ineffective. We all know who they are.
    Both corrupt bastards Espstein and Chetcuti were supposedly vetted by the Board of Trustees and the Review Officer to bring transparency and HR professionalism to the Benefits Funds. Transparency my ass. They filled the 9th floor with their cronies and f*ck buddies and installed individuals hand-picked by the BOT because of their loyalty to the contractors, ability to say yes to anything/everything and general lack of knowledge for ease of manipulation into major positions. Transparency? Hey Mr. Walsh - Ralph and his lady friend came from the racing association, which was under trusteeship. How did they get hired? Want to show the transparency and efficiency of the new and improved Benefit Funds? Release all the application, interview amd hire/fire records for all the positions filled during Joe's reign of terror.

    It's like a line from that song by The Who, "Meet the new boss, same as the old boss". When will the membership STOP getting fooled again?

  5. Seems like you uneducated moron's are spewing crap and creating rumors to spread. Wow, are you all teenagers, because that is clearly how you are acting. Jealousy and ignorance is just pathetic. It's 2012, and get an education rather than spending your time crying about the lives of others, to make up for your sad little life.

  6. Since you seem concerned about educational standards, maybe you should consider going back to school. I am sure you meant MORONS in the plural, rather than the possessive form which you used. Perhaps you could also drop by B&N and purchase a basic guide to English grammar to help you use commas more effectively in your writing.

    2. just curious...does anyone even have proof of any of this? Is this all speculation and slander of people who are just trying to live their lives. Families could be ruined over this type of thing, innocent people could be hurt if it is not true. Has that even been considered? Take a minute, why say those kinds of things?

    3. Because IT'S TRUE!!!!!! Anyone that works with them knows this wake up and smell the coffee!!!!!

    4. So just curious what was done in the office that makes it so clear, were they having sex IN the office? What exactly was going on?

    5. I'm related to one of these people you are talking shit about and I don't appreciate what you are saying. Regardless of how you feel about them saying "cancer to them" and calling them horrible names is uncalled for and completely disgusting. It's pathetic and it DOES tear families apart!

  10. Epstien was an obnoxious, self egrandising twit. His pomposity caught up with him. His short stay at the Funds will end eventually prove to cost the Funds millions...wait and see.

    1. Excuse me, are you as ignorant as you sound? Your statement is completely incoherent, you really should think before you speak, that way you will not sound quite so stupid! You are welcome.

  11. You are right....an affair does not constitute firing. He went to 9 lunches which were work related in one year. He also had ONE night in a hotel after a meeting that ended at 11pm in the city on a weeknight. They fired him b/c he did his job. When Epstein was hired he was told to "clean" up the place and start firing people who were associated with the corruption or under Stuart's watch. He did that but in the process he angered a lot of people and so Dennis Walsh decided it was time to let Epstein go b/c he wanted to make sure he held onto his job right now. It's all disgusting.

  12. This post can be from one of four people. Joe, Ralph, Gina Toner, or the Interim Executive Director Laura Kalick. Who else would have these exact details but only one of the four of them. The only one of them that is still on the inside is Laura Kalick, the "Interim" Executive Director. Good Luck brothers & sisters ( or as she likes to call us, "customers"), she will be more then happy to bleed us dry of our benefits seeing that she is in love with the Corporate world! __________Joe had 9 work related lunches with whom???? An affair does constitute firing if the person you are are having an affair with works directly under you (executive assisstant & office manager),(by the way, they were both married!),read the personnel policy that one of you wrote! Joe stayed over night in a hotel with whom???? Fire people in the Benefit Funds who are associated with corruption? Whom???? Never heard of or read of any corrupton in the Benefit Funds in Walsh's Reports. He would be the first person to be more then happy to report any wrong doings! What else do you have Joe, Ralph, Gina or Laura?

I would ask that if you would like to leave a comment that you think of Local 157 Blogspot as your online meeting hall and that you wouldn’t say anything on this site that you wouldn’t, say at a union meeting. Constructive criticism is welcome, as we all benefit from such advice. Obnoxious comments are not welcome.
