A federal judge on Tuesday refused Bruce Raynor’s request for an emergency conference after a dispute over union records at UNITE HERE’s Seventh Avenue headquarters in Manhattan.
Raynor, the suspended general president of the union, accused John Wilhelm, president of its hospitality division, of forcing his way into the building with supporters about 4 a.m. Friday and seizing union assets. Wilhelm said his group entered the building to stop the destruction of documents.
