Union organizer in charge of Chicago's "Fight for 15" campaign fired amid sexual harassment probe

Regardless, he's gone all the same.

From the Chicago Sun-Times:
The head union organizer for Chicago’s "Fight for 15" chapter was fired earlier this week amid harassment allegations that he denies, a source told the Chicago Sun-Times.

Caleb Jennings was let go Monday, as part of the Service Employees International Union's ongoing investigation into complaints from staff alleging sexual misconduct and abusive behavior, the source said.

Jennings was president of the Workers Organizing Committee of Chicago, which leads the "Fight for 15" effort advocating for a $15 minimum wage. He told the Chicago Sun-Times he wasn't given a reason for his termination and was never contacted regarding an internal investigation.
