I'm sorry to hear of this terribly difficult situation.

Your post is very long and a bit difficult to follow because I don't know the people are such as Dr. Yang or the structure of how things are set up.

In a couple of sentences please let me know exactly what you would like to see happen and what you would like the union to do for you.
