NEW YORK — Bruce Raynor has severed his ties with UNITE HERE and will join breakaway union Workers United in a leadership role.
Raynor released a statement to UNITE HERE union members on Friday tendering his resignation as general president. John Wilhelm, president of UNITE HERE’s hospitality division, suspended Raynor on May 14, accusing him of using union funds to help support Workers United. As part of that suspension Raynor was relieved of all his “duties, responsibilities and powers” and barred from his New York offices except to return property or on visits approved by Wilhelm. The suspension with pay was approved for as much as 90 days.
