Fed up with a boss who harassed employees and made offensive remarks especially to women employees, Teamsters at the Woonsocket Housing Authority decided to do something about it.
They got together and took a very public vote of No Confidence in the Executive Director. Housing
Authority workers who belong to another union, AFSCME, took the same action.
The next day, Executive Director Robert Kulik was put on “sick leave,” never to return. Kulik and the
Housing Authority Board agreed on a severance.
For once, union members got to fire the boss!
It was the second time in about six months that Kulik came under fire for mismanagement. Last December, he was put on unpaid leave for bullying workers and making offensive remarks to female employees. This time, Kulik is gone for good.
