Greetings Local 47 Colleagues,
As we promised, here are some of the reactions we’ve gotten to date about the classless way Barbara Markay, a 15 year employee and business rep of the Local was fired and the possibly illegal conduct of a NON-ELECTED Local 47 employee, Doug Caine.
These are also reactions to the series of E-mails that went between Lisa Haley of the Freelance Musicians Association and Doug Caine, Executive Board Frontman (Listed as Office Manager).
You input in very welcome. Next we will send you testimonials of some of those who’ve benefited from Barbara’s expertise:
This is absurd/outrageous, and simply not acceptable.
Many thanks to the Committee for bringing this matter
to the membership. Her (Barbara’s) hard work has obviously gone to
the wayside and her and all of her hard work have been
pushed out the back door like a bag of garbage.
I agree, lets have accountability within the union.
