On December 11, 2019, Plaintiff Malvin Garnett filed his Complaint against Defendants, Transport Workers Union of America AFL-CIO and Transport Workers Union Local 555, for allegedly engaging in employment discrimination and retaliation. Plaintiff also asserts a claim for breach of contract.
Plaintiff was a member of the defendant labor organizations when he alleges he was subject to workplace discrimination and retaliation. When Plaintiff was terminated from his position, the Defendants filed a grievance on his behalf. Plaintiff, however, claims that following a variety of inappropriate comments from the Defendants’ Local 555 Manager, Plaintiff’s grievance was withdrawn in retaliation for his raising concerns about discrimination. Plaintiff seeks compensatory and injunctive relief.
The case is in its infancy. Proof of service has not been filed and the case is currently referred to Magistrate Judge Lurana S. Snow for appropriate disposition. If interested, please email FLSD_ProBono@flsd.uscourts.gov
