Hussein was illegally suspended by the union officers after he exposed financial expenses increasing the salary of the Local union president James McKeever to $400,000. Before he was suspended without a hearing, the union lawyer Lawrence Rosenzweig and President McKeever sent a letter demanding that he resign due to dual unionism.
