Missouri Union Boss Charged with Embezzling and Theft

On January 6th, 2021, Scott E. Rodgers was charged with embezzling and theft. The man is president of the National Postal Mail Handlers Union (NPMHU) and his embezzlements and theft total $80,765. He’s certainly not the first union boss to take advantage of the system and get greedy with what they take. And unfortunately, he won’t be the last one either. Luckily, the OLMS Denver-St. Louis District Office is looking into the case along with the United States Postal Service’s Office of Inspector General.

From the Department of Labor:

Scott E. Rodgers, President of National Postal Mail Handlers Union (NPMHU) Local 314 (located in St. Louis, Mo.), was charged with one count of embezzlement and theft of labor union assets, totaling $80,765, in violation of 29 U.S.C. 501(c).
