One of the garment industry’s leading union advocates for 38 years is resigning from the main apparel and textile union that he shepherded through a bitterly divisive union battle amid charges of misusing his expense account.
Bruce Raynor, president of Workers United and executive vice president of the Service Employees International Union, tendered his resignation in a letter to SEIU International president Mary Kay Henry on Tuesday. The SEIU said in a statement it had reached a settlement with Raynor in regard to the charges, which it has now withdrawn. Raynor’s resignation is effective May 7.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
