Two former employees have sued Mickey Kasparian, president of Food and Commercial Workers Local 135.  While the two cases themselves are very different in substance, one theme is a constant among them both. Kasparian created a hostile work environment and used intimidation to discourage employees from reporting acts against them.

Specifically, Kasparian has been accused of forcing one woman to carry on a sexual relationship with him for years. He has also been accused of wrongly firing another woman when she was “incorrectly suspected of being on the wrong side of a political issue.”
