Updated: 9 hours ago



25510 Kelly Road Roseville Michigan - According to Department of Labor filings Roseville Guard Union President Dave (aka Dave Devin the Clown Magician) Hickey has recklessly been spending his members DUES MONEY on Bogus Lawsuits in the amount so far to the tune of $905,212.00. However we believe the costs are much more since these reports only reflect payments up to March 2022. Based on our estimates on past payments, these Bogus Lawsuit legal fee amounts far EXCEED OVER 1 MILLION DOLLARS of his Members Dues Money $$$$.


DOL Reports show Hickey's Union paid $36,950.00 dollars to the law firm of Young & Associates P.C. from the period 11/18/2018 to 1/19/2019.

The 68 year old Hickey who has been at the helm of this Roseville Michigan guard union since 2000 has seen many of his local union officers from around the country indicted & convicted on criminal charges for for embezzlement of the local union treasury. Read more about this here.


While this has taken place Hickey is on a personal crusade spending his members dues money recklessly on attorney fees like a high roller in a strip club on continuous bogus lawsuits for the past few years in both the state court as well as the federal courts of Michigan. DOL Reports show Hickey's Union paid an exorbitant amount of money in just one month alone in the the amount of $111,329.00 dollars to his attorneys on 12/9/2021. This was part of the $326,037 paid by Hickey to his attorneys in just a ten (10) month period. YOUR DUES MONEY @ WORK!


Hickey & his International Union has many legal troubles of his own. If you visit Hickey's International website and or his Facebook page there is no mention of any lawsuits either filed by him or against him, nor is there any transparency or accountability to his membership on the amount of money he is spending on these attorneys. WHY?... $905,212.00 thus far as reported from DOL filings.


One thing that is definitely not posted on his International website is the fact that Hickey is set to stand trial this November 2022 in a lawsuit personally filed against him, Dwayne Phillips his National Organizing Director and Hickey's International Union for defamation which could result in the payment of millions of dollars should they be found guilty of the many defamation charges filed against them. Why is Hickey keeping this a secret from his membership? Call him on his cell phone @ 586-709-9563 and find out.


Dwayne Phillips National Organizing Director for Hickey's Security Guard Union shown above wearing his rabbit suit will also be facing a federal trial for defamation this coming November. Phillips has admitted in his depositions under oath that he made a number of flyers, videos & internet posts on the orders of Hickey which are the subject of the upcoming defamation trial they are personally facing.



It also would be of no surprise that Hickey is using the Union's treasury to pay for his attorneys to defend both himself and Philips personal lawsuits without his memberships knowledge or approval. Could it be the $111,329.00 attorney fee payment made on 12/9/21 was to personally defend Hickey & Phillips?

In addition to spending 1 Million dollars in attorney fees, on bogus lawsuits, Hickey has now increased his yearly salary from $177,558 to $278,370 according to the last two LM forms filed by him with the Department of Labor.
That amounts to a $100,812 yearly wage increase or a 57% wage increase compared to the 2.5% to 3% wage increases Hickey negotiates & boasts about for his members.

It should be noted the only way Hickey could of possibly gotten a 57% yearly wage increase would be by a vote of his International Executive Board. Not only is Hickey swimming in money from his $100,812 dollar yearly wage increase, pension records indicate Hickey is expected to receive over 1.4 Million from a defined pension payout once he finally retires. See below active participants.


It should also be noted that none of the current active International Executive Board members based on the chart above are participating in this defined pension plan which is funded by the members dues money. The only Current International officer in the defined pension plan is DAVE HICKEY! See above and view the OFFICIAL DOCUMENTS BELOW.

Besides receiving a $278,370 salary from his Roseville Guard Union, President Dave Hickey (aka Dave Devin the Clown Magician) also sells magic tricks to magic shops around the country as well as performing at children shows. See video link below.

"Teddy Bear Turmoil" performed by Dave Devin 2014


According to state records Hickey has been running his magic business under the name MAGICAL PROMOTIONS UNLIMITED, LLC from his Unions headquarters located @ 25510 Kelly Road Roseville, Michigan 48066 since 09/11/2007. This may explain why his office looks like a magic shop.




Below are just a few of Dave Hickey (aka Dave Devin the Clown Magician) products Hickey is or has sold from his International Union headquarters located at 25510 Kelly Road Roseville, Michigan 48066.


DAVE'S BIG $1 and Stretch a Buck.

There is NO doubt based on Department of labor filings that Dave Hickey (aka Dave Devin the Clown Magician) Yearly Salary has Doubled in size right before his members & International Executive Boards eyes from $177, 588 to $278, 370 or at least by $100,812 dollars!


It should be noted that Union President Hickey had paid his attorneys in a state case against a former employee in a personal vendetta lawsuit $414,788.79 dollars in legal fees & costs (Legal Fees $391,204.50 + costs $23,584.49 = $414,788.79 plus $20,000 in collection costs = $434,788.79 dollars) in Hickey's attempt to collect on a $73,728 dollar judgment!


The above document has been altered from its original form removing portions of the court document.


The irony of this story is that this case is still ongoing and on appeal, which means Hickey will continue to drain the Union treasury of thousands of more dollars and perhaps hundreds of thousands of dollars ($434,788.79 thus far) in legal fees, appeal costs & collection fees in Hickey's attempt to collect $73,728 in damages, which in the end will most likely be overturned on appeal based on factual and legal basis and it is highly likely it will never be collected.


Based on the above, Hickey's obsession for revenge has already cost his members hundreds of thousands of dollars $905,212.00 to be exact of their hard earned dues money and still growing. How Crazy & Ridiculous is this?


Hickey has just spent an additional $20,000 that we know about based on DOL reports on attorney fees from a new law firm Dovitz Law Offices in his attempt to try to collect a $73,728 judgement. WHEN WILL IT END?....See below.



While Hickey continues to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars in legal fees, appeal fees, collection fees, sanctions & fines in these lawsuits on one end, he continues to lose members and revenue on the other end. Over the past few years Hickey's security guard Union has lost thousands of members in a number of NLRB elections to our union, our affiliated unions, other unions, decertifications as well as disclaiming interest in several units they had represented as noted below.

HICKEY'S MAGICAL ILLUSION - While Hickey continues to boast that his Union has 27,000 members, the truth is he actually has lost thousands of members over the years and presently has only 14,833 active members and NOT 27,000 members as he continues to claim on his website and social media posts, according to his recent Department of labor filings below.

Mathematically speaking Hickey is off by 12,167 Members. Obviously Hickey doesn't know how to add or just maybe it is just one of his many magical illusions?



Is this the sound mind of a Union president in charge of millions of dollars who is entrusted with & responsible for his members hard earned dues money?



Or is this the mind of an insane, obsessed & reckless Clown Magician, selling magic tricks from his union office during union working hours, running wild and amok authorizing the spending of a million dollars like a little child in a candy store of his members hard earned dues money, on attorney fees, appeal costs, associated costs and collection fees in his attempt to seek revenge,? You decide.


This is a developing story.
