SEIU boss faces recall over OT pay scam

The president of Oregon's largest union for state employees is facing a recall effort because of his claim that he is owed more than $100,000 in back overtime pay. The president of Local 503 of the Services Employees International Union has traditionally been seen as a management position exempt from overtime.

That is according to those seeking to recall Joe DiNicola. An SEIU board member backing the recall is Barbara Casey. She says they want to hold their leaders accountable just like the public wants public employees held accountable.

DiNicola, meanwhile, is seeking a court order charging that union and government resources are being used to aid the recall, which SEIU denies. He also has filed a civil rights complaint charging he has been discriminated against for making his wage claim.
