The president of the union local that represents NYPD traffic agents was suspended from his job and is working full-time directing traffic and writing tickets amid sex harassment allegations brought by his secretary, the Daily News has learned.
Syed Rahim was removed as head of Communications Workers of America Local 1182 in May after leaders of the national union said they confirmed allegations that Rahim harassed his secretary and helped promote a sexually-charged atmosphere at the union’s Queens office.
There were also allegations of “financial irregularities,” according to a notice on the chapter’s website.
“Officers of Local 1182 submitted a request for Temporary Administration due to allegations that were made which include sexual harassment, hostile work environment and financial irregularities,” CWA officials said in a statement on the website. “These were serious allegations which are being investigated by the National Union.”
Top officials of the Washington-based CWA have not made a final decision to dismiss Rahim, who is currently suspended from all union activities without pay.
