Below are my weekly lessons for weeks 20 – 22: The American Industrial Revolution. The success of the credit union’s current efforts is contingent on so many factors not the least of which is that Charles R. Wiggington, Sr. is a president who has no understanding of the importance of member relations and whose administration is characterized by deception, illegal acts, and scandals. This time, President Wiggington did not post a notice on the credit union’s Intranet nor did he order placement of a notice on the doors of either branch.
Ms. Fortson’s termination was divulged by employees of the Credit Resolutions Department, some of who were informed of the theft by Vice President of Operations, Yvonne Boutte, who had been reassigned to the Los Angeles branch during the months of January through April 2014. During the month of August, notorious Vice President of Operations, Yvonne Boutte, left the credit union.
Employees of both offices were told that the credit union’s network had sustained technical issues that caused the closures, however, the Van Nuys branch which shares the same network as the Los Angeles and South Pasadena branches, was conspicuously unaffected. A notice was posted the following day simply stating she was no longer an employee of the credit union. Boutte was hired in 2008 to head the credit union’s collection department known as Credit Resolutions.
Allegedly, Executive Vice President, Rodger Smock, disclosed that she was ill and would be gone for awhile, however, she did return momentarily and was observed re-entering her office with Mr. Smock and afterwards, quietly departing the credit union. However, Ms. Boutte arrived at Priority One before the actual agreement between the credit union and its contracted collector was actually in effect.
She was evidently well enough to return to the credit union to be escorted to her office where she picked up some belongings while her other personal property was packed by her friend and subordinate, Ms. Alex Suarez. For years, the credit union depended on an a paid contractor to perform collection proceedings but in 2008, the President chose to create an in-house collections department, ending Priority One’s agreement with the outside contractor. In the meantime, we have to wait patiently for the outcome of the many lawsuits being litigated by the credit union.
