New Haven’s firefighters have filed a lawsuit against the union that represents firefighters in Connecticut.

Local 825 is New Haven’s firefighting union and was one of the original founding members of the Uniformed Professional Fire Fighters Association of Connecticut.

The union says it left in January 2016 because the dues its members were paying were too high and the union was using them for activities for other local chapters.
