Case Details

The Fairness Center represents William H. Neely, III, a psychiatric aide at Wernersville State Hospital. Mr. Neely had been a union member for many years, however, he recently resigned his AFSCME, Council 13 membership because he believed that the union no longer represented his interests or beliefs. The union, however, refused to honor his resignation, citing a provision of a collective bargaining agreement between the union and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania as its justification. Mr. Neely brings this lawsuit to establish that the union cannot force him to remain a union member. Mr. Neely contends in this lawsuit that the union’s failure to honor his resignation violates his constitutional rights to freedom of association and speech.
