I have yet to receive any notification, other than published news reports, that the NBPA has terminated my employment. If accurate, it is indicative of the extremely troubling process followed by the NBPA during the past few weeks.
Quote:

The report also asserted that Hunter didn't have his contract extension properly approved and when notified that it wasn't approved properly, Hunter took no action.
What a mess that union is. It's hard to get too upset over being fired from a job you never officially had.

Moral of the story is, don't hire your auntie to bake cookies for labour meetings for half a million a year. Someone might get suspicious. :suspicious:

I always wonder how people who are techincally quite smart and are given so much end up doing such silly things.

What he did might not have been all that silly. It might have been very rational. If he saw that the end was in sight no matter what, whether it was on his terms or those of others, then he might as well get as much out of it as he can. It looks bad on him, but it's a rational choice that was made easier by the weaknesses of the organisation.

It's not unlike the bankers that looked at deregulation and pursued a course that made themselves big enough to recklessly enrich themselves while destroying the economy without seeing any recourse. Only in the case of bankers, it's not about seeing the end of the line, because that simply does not exist for them to the extent that they likely consider it all. But the point is that what appears like silly and ludicrous and reprehensibly irresponsible acts, can be seen as coldly rational calculations that should have been perceived as inevitable given the lack of proper oversight.

But now the others involved in this nepotism look like jackals also. And if there is a civil suit coming, everything will be wide open and they will be dragged through the mud.

I don't want someone insulting my mom/neice/whoever, so how much more making them look like leeches. If I'm the the one in control, wouldn't allow it, especially as a calculation.

LX 02-17-2013 12:45 PM

Yeah. But I was under the impression there wouldn't be much to be done in the way of legal action. One thing that is definitely incredible is the way people can have no regard for their own reputation, or that of those close to them.

Deez 02-17-2013 12:52 PM

If I'm a broke, sour grapes player, or recently retired, who mis-managed their money and is now broke, I'm looking for a greasy lawyer who might take the case. ha-haaa.
