After a long battle to form a union, members of IFPTE Judicial Council 3 at the DC Office of Administrative Hearings (OAH) are under attack by management once again, the union reports. The jobs of union president Judge Jesse Goode (left), along with other high-profile union members -- who serve as administrative law judges at the OAH -- are being threatened with termination by management. "This is the most blatant, open attack on a union leader and their members that I have ever seen in all my time in labor," said Paul Shearon, IFPTE Secretary-Treasurer. Judge Goode has 12 years of service at OAH and was just promoted last year, but management apparently now views his union activities advocating for his colleagues as a threat. "We are calling on all of our union brothers and sisters to contact the Mayor's office, along with their City Council Representatives, to ensure Judge Goode gets a fair hearing, as well as investigate OAH management's anti-union actions," said Shearon.
