Mandel v. SEIU

Taking the fight to Illinois

We have filed a lawsuit in Illinois on behalf of Erich Mandel against his government union, SEIU Local 73. Erich is a diesel mechanic in the transportation department of Community Consolidated School District 15 in Palatine, Illinois. 

He first asked to leave SEIU in August 2018, after learning about his rights in the Janus decision. The union responded that Erich must wait until an arbitrary time period to resign his membership and stop dues collection. This is unjust and unconstitutional.
