The New York Director Of The Fight For 15 Has Resigned Amid Harassment Investigation


The Service Employees International Union terminated two more top organizers Thursday, the union said, in connection with an ongoing investigation into harassment.

The moves come after the resignation of top labor strategist Scott Courtney and the firing of a top Chicago organizer.

“As a result of information that has come to light through our ongoing internal investigation, today SEIU took action on two senior staff,” union spokesperson Sahar Wali said in a statement to BuzzFeed News.

Kendall Fells, Director of the Fight for 15 minimum wage campaign for New York, resigned Thursday morning, a source within the union confirmed. It’s currently unclear who the other staffer is. Fells didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.

“These personnel actions are the culmination of this stage of the investigation, which brought to light the serious problems related to abusive behavior towards staff, predominantly female staff,” Wali said. “We know that progress does not stop with these personnel actions alone. President Henry has taken important steps toward ensuring that our workplace environment reflects our values and that all staff is respected, their contributions are valued, and their voices are heard.”
