She resigned from Local 99 because of numerous issues internally that she details in her email. Check this out, and see Facebook groups asking Bill Lloyd and Neneki Lee to "Reinstate Cristina Hernandez Now!"
And here Tasty thought Bill (the Trustee Andy Stern appointed) and Neneki (External Organizing Director) were supposed to clean up and improve Local 99 after all of the corruption! Doesn't seem like the staff are buying it...

This letter serves as notification that effective today, I will no longer be working with SEIU Local 99.
My time here has been quite an experience. I’ve worked with some amazing people (many of whom are no longer at Local 99) and I’ve learned a lot about the labor movement. The late nights I’ve spent working on various projects and campaigns were a result of my belief that working people deserve basic rights in the workplace and that we do make a difference with every new unit that we organize.
Unfortunately, at this time, I no longer believe that Local 99 has the best interest of its members in mind. I can no longer work for an organization that supposedly stands for quality jobs and rights in the workplace, and then goes and commits the same (if not worse) travesties that we fight against in our members’ workplaces.
I genuinely hope that Local 99 does not completely lose sight of what the organization stands for. A large part of that is remembering that the hard-working staff is also deserving of basic considerations in its day-to-day operations. We have all made personal sacrifices to ensure that the job we do is done well and in many cases, this sacrifice goes unnoticed or is punished.
I will make arrangements to have all the equipment I have in my possession dropped off at the office before the week is over. Attached is the exit questionnaire that has been required of those who have resigned in the past. If there are any other areas that I have missed, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
