UPDATE: Justice Prevails in Lee Ortega Case!
On November 27, an arbitrator ordered the Department of Corrections to reinstate Local 3422 President Lee Ortega! The arbitrator found that the Department had wrongfully terminated Ortega for standing up against an administration bent on covering up a high ranking official's sexual harassment of several female workers. Inside sources say the Department intends to appeal this neutral hearing officer's decision. Once again, this administration is inappropriatly using tax-payer money.
