Three-years probation to be served and over $34,000 in restitution to be paid by a former union organizer convicted of forging signatures for union interest cards.
Skye Rubadeau McRoberts, 32, was convicted and sentenced in Anchorage Superior Court on Monday.
State prosecutors say she has already paid half the restitution to the Alaska Department of Labor and Workforce Development and to the University of Alaska.
The forged interest cards were part of an effort three years ago by the Alaska State Employees Association to organize nearly 2000 unorganized employees of the University system.
Rubadeau McRoberts operated a mailing business that could have benefited financially with the addition of more union members.
