Officers of UNITE HERE, who are suing to dissolve the merger that created the union, have filed a lawsuit accusing John Wilhelm, president of the hospitality division, of violating their freedom of speech.
In the latest legal salvo of the union fight, filed on Feb. 23 in Manhattan federal court, the 15 plaintiffs allege that Wilhelm threatened them with unspecified disciplinary charges for their participation in the litigation seeking to break-up UNITE HERE. In addition, they charged that Wilhelm has undertaken a campaign within the union to suppress their dissent.
