(Washington Free Beacon) Another official at the Service Employees International Union has been ousted following accusations of sexual assault.
Pedro Malave was first fired from a local Boston-area SEIU chapter in 2014, only to be later rehired at two other local chapters in California, the labor website Payday Report reported last week. Politico‘s Morning Shift newsletter flagged the report on Monday and confirmed that the locals dismissed Malave after they learned of his past alleged conduct.
In the summer of 2014, the Boston-area 32BJ SEIU Local 615 investigated Malave, then the assistant director, after a co-worker, Daria Alladio, accused him of sexual assault. She alleged that, in 2008, Malave stuck his hand up her skirt and “put his hand in-between her butt cheeks,” according to the Payday Report, and then awoke one night in April 2014 to discover Malave masturbating against her check.
