Black Lives Matter member sued for severance deal

An outspoken member of Black Lives Matter Toronto is being sued after leaving her job with UofT’s student union with a $277,508 severance deal that included 1,975 hours of overtime.

The union wants former executive director Sandra “Sandy” Hudson and her co-defendants — who allegedly approved the package — to jointly pay it back, along with another $200,000 in damages for breach of fiduciary duty.

The severance payment equals approximately 10% of the union’s annual operating budget.

In its statement of claim, the union alleges Hudson received 3.6 years of her base salary after only working there 2 1/2 years.

Hudson, the claim says, filed for 1,975 hours of overtime on April 1, 2015. Before that date, it says, she “had never recorded any overtime hours into her personnel file.”

Wow.
