In a case filed in December 2004, Ardingo claimed former union president Robert Potter and the UFCW illegally fired him for cooperating with a federal investigation into union finances and for failing to pay enough into a union legal defense fund. A related case is working its way to trial, possibly this fall, for Michael McMillan, who for 24 years was elected recorder for Local 951.
Sweet! One union boss gets to sue another union boss, and it’s members that pick up the tab!
