The State Worker: Harassment case raises questions about status of union activists on paid leave

Mechelle Sherles allegedly suffered an unwanted kiss from Rich Boyd during an SEIU Local 1000 bargaining session at the Holiday Inn in Sacramento three years ago. Boyd, on staff as the local’s bargaining director at the time, allegedly followed that up with sexually explicit text messages to Sherles, a Franchise Tax Board employee on leave at the time to serve on the union bargaining team.
