A letter alleging a union leader's son was given a do nothing job with Trenton's Sewer Utility and has received special treatment from superviors has surfaced.

The letter alleges that Dominick Talone, son of union president Dave Talone, was given a job as a laborer with the utility in September of 2007.  The letter goes on to state that the younger Talone received a wage increase after one month on the job instead of on his anniversary date as is standard.  It also claims the employee comes and goes as he pleases on the job; has been seen sleeping on the job; does not follow proper procedures for calling off sick from work, etc.

 Signed by "Concerned Employees from the Water and Sewer Utility," copies were to be distributed to all seven city council members, Director of Public Works Eric Jackson, General Superintendent Joe McIntyre, Assistant General Superintendent Peter Lupinacci, and Superintendent Charles Rocco.
