Meatworkers union boss charged with ripping off the Meatworkers union

Who would ever have a guessed…a dodgy Meatworkers union boss caught stealing from his own dodgy Meatworkers union accounts.

Remember I busted these guys a few years back for dodgy accounting.

No surprises then that one ratbag union boss is before the courts for stealing his own member’s money.

An Invercargill man is facing?multiple?charges totalling nearly $55,000 for allegedly misusing a meatworks company’s?union expense account.

Court documents reveal Jamie David Clark, 61, faces more than 35?charges?between 2007 and 2015. ?

Police?allege he?dishonestly used Blue Sky Meat Workers union shed account cheques for personal use on at least 500 occasions, the documents reveal.

It is understood Clark had worked at Blue Sky Meats and was an on-site?union official at the time of the alleged offending.

He is due to appear in the Invercargill District Court on November 8.

Police have indicated that if reparation is paid then some of the charges against Clark may be dropped.

Yeah, I bet the cops would be happy to let him loose.

A few angry Meatworkers union heavies will mete out some pretty rough justice, far more rough than the slap on the wrist with a wet bus ticket ?the courts would deliver.
