You’ve read the column and maybe even perused the court records in the sexual harassment lawsuit state worker Mechelle Sherles brought against her union, SEIU Local 1000. You know the judge in the case ruled that Sherles couldn’t hold the local responsible as her employer because, as a state worker on union paid leave, she wasn’t a union employee.

Now you can take our poll and express your thoughts about the case in the comments section below (if you’re certified to use The Bee’s system), or jump over to The State Worker community Facebook page and leave a few thoughts.
