In the wake of the Los Angeles District Attorney’s race and union busting federal trial, anti-union animus continues. Jackie Lacey’s and Steve Cooley’s violation of a federal injunction is flagrant in the form of their manager Janet Moore and county counsel Julie-Dixon Silva.
Steve Cooley and Jackie Lacey along with their directors and managers were ordered by federal judge Otis Wright, in the form of a federal injunction to stop harassing and intimidating members of the Association of Deputy District Attorneys, a certified prosecutors union.
ADDA/AFSCME attorney Tris Carpenter, represents DAs in matters such as grievance hearings and union issues, and Mr. Carpenter accompanied a young district attorney in a grievance hearing where the DA “reported sexual harassment, domestic violence, trespassing, and potential grand theft”.

Director Janet Moore along with wannabe judge, but thankfully not appointed by Governor Brown, Julie-Dixon Silva, both flew into a rage and began their rant of anti-union remarks and explicative vocabulary unbecoming of ladies, district attorneys and managers. Janet Moore was previously named in the anti-union federal law suit set for trial in early December. Moore was unfortunately dropped from the law suit for unknown reasons.
With language fit for a sailor, Moore reportedly screamed at the union representative Tris Carpenter calling him a “paid Lackey whose only existence was to draw a salary from the dues paid by the members of the union”. She told Mr. Carpenter to “get the f*** out of my office”, but that the district attorney filing their grievance could stay. Moore violated the federal injunction, ERO 5.04.070 and ERO 5.04.240 by restraining and coercing employees from exercising their rights avail themselves of union representation and file grievances when they are mistreated.
Moore and Silva committed unfair employee relations practices and could be held in contempt of federal court. Inside sources say this is only one of many flagrant violations that have existed over the past year since the injunction was filed. Meanwhile, Jackie Lacey has been seen around town at debates and fundraisers bragging about her abilities as a manager. It seems her ability to manage Julie-Dixon Silva and Janet Moore are only part of Jackie Lacey’s problems as she enters into the District Attorney’s election and federal court where she will face perjury allegations.
