On January 12, Gregory Paradis, former chief steward of United Federation of Special Police and Security Officers Local 501, was sentenced in U.S. District Court for the District of New Hampshire to two years of probation for embezzling $13,493 in funds from the Seabrook, N.H. union. He also was ordered to pay full restitution. Paradis had pled guilty in October after being charged in August. The union represents security workers at the Seabrook nuclear power plant. The actions follow an investigation by the U.S. Labor Department’s Office of Labor-Management Standards.
