Teamsters drop case requiring grievance fees for non-members

By Jack Spencer | Michigan Capitol Confidential.

The Teamsters Union on Friday agreed to dismiss all of its claims against three city of Dearborn employees in a case that involved union representation obligations under Michigan’s right-to-work law.

The Teamsters and the Mackinac Center Legal Foundation agreed to end the lawsuit with the union also agreeing to pay attorney’s fees to MCLF.

Last year, after the state’s right-to-work law went into effect and it became illegal for unions to have an employee fired for not paying dues or fees, the Teamsters instituted a fee for non-members who wanted to file a grievance.
