The drama that has unfolded at Saint Francis Xavier Credit Union has made the news several times since a release was issued by the Mayet Castillo-led group of members. Castillo is currently the chair of the credit union’s supervisory committee and her group has been on a steady offensive, criticizing the Roy Smith-led board for decisions they’ve made. One of those decisions is to sack Rafael Dominguez, the general manager, who had been on the job for ten years. Dominguez told us this week that he’s still legally the GM because the board can’t fire him without a special meeting or an annual general meeting. The board insists their decision was justified because Dominguez’s contract was one-sided. Since then, the board has replaced Dominguez with Michael Riverol, the man at the centre of an incident, which required police intervention. So, the question is: who is the real GM? According to Castillo, the post is still vacant.
Dominguez has already indicated that he is proceeding with court action to get his job back. As to when a special meeting or an AGM will be held, it’s still up in the air at this time. We continue to follow the story.
