    Somebody closer to the situation can probably brief us better than I on what's really going on. Caught on Romenesko ...<blockquote>The president of The Boston Globe’s largest union has taken a medical leave, as other union officials prepare to file internal charges against him, alleging that he signed the name of another officer on a check, according to members with knowledge of the matter.

    Once charges against Boston Newspaper Guild president Daniel Totten are filed - and that could come as early as today - the union has 60 days to hold a trial. The jury would consist of seven members selected by lottery, according to these members, and would determine whether Totten violated the union’s constitution. If so, it would set his punishment. . . .

    Members of the union’s governing board, which includes top officers and delegates from departments represented by the Guild, were briefed on the situation last night. Totten is accused of signing the name of vice president Scott Steeves on his own paycheck, which required a countersignature of another union officer, according to members with knowledge of the matter.</blockquote>http://www.boston.com/business/articles/2009/09/29/globe_union_president_takes_leave/
