Vt. state workers' union reverses chief's firing

Posted: Updated:

MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - The Vermont State Employees' Associated has reinstated its executive director more than a month after he was fired, and two top lawyers with the union have resigned.

The VSEA Board of Directors voted Monday to reinstate Mark Mitchell as executive director after reviewing an independent investigator's findings. The union says it was determined that charges raised against Mitchell earlier did not warrant his dismissal.

The union said Mitchell had been invited to return immediately to his role as executive director.

Meanwhile, two lawyers at the union, General Counsel Michael Casey and Associate General Counsel Abigail Winters, have resigned. No reason for their departures was given.
