Single Mom In California Takes On The Union For Alleged Forced Dues

A single mother is grappling with United Domestic Workers Local 3930 (UDW) for allegedly forging her signature and taking union dues. Money that the mom says she desperately needed to care for her disabled daughter.

Western Journal reported that earlier this month, California resident Maria Quezambra officially filed a federal lawsuit against United Domestic Workers Local 3930 — and the claims she’s making are stomach-churning.

The lawsuit claims that in addition to essentially stealing money from her account, the union also trespassed on her property, misled her regarding the proper requirements for paying dues and stepped on every attempt she made to retrieve her funds.

“Ms. Quezambra did not sign anything indicating she desired to become a union member or pay union dues, and the State began to deduct Union dues from her paycheck automatically,” the lawsuit reads, according to the Free Beacon.

“The Union forged Ms. Quezambra’s signature to justify past dues deductions and to lock her into paying full union dues each year.”

The suit comes nearly five years after the Supreme Court put an end to a controversial dues scheme that worked against individuals like Quezambra.

Washington Free Beacon added that Quezambra is being represented by the Washington-state-based Freedom Foundation, a pro-life market think tank. Karin Sweigart, a foundation attorney, called the union’s actions “outrageous.” The alleged abuse suffered by Quezambra and her daughter was further exacerbated by the home visits from union officials over her objections after she attempted to sever ties. The decision amounted to intimidation and trespassing.

“Trespassing on a person’s property against his or her will, frightening the person’s disabled child, and forging a signature to obtain money from the person should not be tolerated,” Sweigart said in a statement. “Just forging someone’s signature to commit that person to paying for union advocacy or political causes against that person’s will would be bad enough. But because the violation is also a constitutional one, the conduct is doubly egregious”

The lawsuit comes as the Trump administration works to end forced dues schemes for home health aides.
