Even as a long-standing, dues-paying member of the MSU APA Union, Union officials have continually REFUSED to release written policies, procedures, or financial records. Union members have continually requested the info, but have been continually rebuffed. The GuideStar web site has now changed those parameters (much to this non-profit Union's chagrin) and union members are now discovering information their leaders don't want disclosed.
