    NEW YORK: Farmington employee sues town over labor union membership

    June 12, 2023 // Hinman started working for the town in 2014 and joined the Teamsters in 2018. When he tried to resign his union membership in 2021, union officials refused to allow it and continued to deduct dues from his wages without his consent, Hinman claims. The lawsuit claims Hinman’s First and Fourteenth Amendment rights were violated, as well as his rights under New York state laws. Hinman wants his union membership resignation to be acknowledged and his dues refunded, with interest.
