A former union organizer with the Alaska State Employees Association was convicted of forgery Monday in Anchorage court.
32-year-old Skye McRoberts submitted hundreds of forged signatures in 2010 to the Alaska Labor Relations Agency in support of her union’s efforts to organize more than 2,000 previously unorganized University of Alaska employees.
Alaska State Troopers received a tip from another union employee that reported suspicions about McRoberts, which led to her conviction.
She was sentenced to spend three years on felony probation and to pay $25,248.10 in restitution to the Alaska Department of Labor and Workforce Development and $9,094.10 to the University of Alaska.
She has already paid half of her restitution obligation.
