Two women have leveled a number of serious accusations against powerful local labor leader Mickey Kasparian.
Two separate lawsuits have been filed against Kasparian, each dealing with different issues.
One is a wrongful termination suit that also alleges gender discrimination. It was brought by Sandy Naranjo, a former organizer for the United Food and Commercial Workers union. Kasparian is president of that union, the largest in San Diego.
In addition to allegations about Kasparian’s treatment of Naranjo, the complaint reveals the depth and extent of the war going on between him and other local progressives.
