Union files grievance after dispatcher fired for spit milk

by Sarah Craighead Dedmon

Teamsters 340 Representative Lorne Smith says his union has filed two grievances against the town of Machias after dispatcher Tyler Wagner was fired and dispatcher Brandon Merrill was formally reprimanded on Aug. 7.

According to a Washington County Sheriff’s Office incident report, Wagner is accused of deliberately spitting into his milk container, which he believed Machias Police Officer Tyler Dunbar was using without permission.

“It is probably the most ridiculous case I have worked on this year,” said Smith.
