The Fairness Center filed a federal civil rights lawsuit on behalf of Jennifer Kumpf, an employee of the Buffalo City School District who resigned from New York State United Teachers (“NYSUT”) in October 2021. Although Ms. Kumpf resigned her union membership, the union and her employer continued to take union dues from her paychecks. Ms. Kumpf brings this lawsuit to enforce her constitutional rights not to be associated with or to financially support a union against her will.
