State/Country relating to question: Arizona
I have called the union and was told they have
been able to get men their pension but never heard back
I hope this message finds you well, present circumstances excluded. I think you are barking up the right tree in attempting to contact the union. I would up the pressure a little however in the way you contact them. I would recommend sending a certified letter with a return receipt to the union's legal and personnel offices in which you tell them who you are, when and where you worked, the years you worked and that you have been told you cannot get your pension.
I would then request assistance from the union and an answer in writing stating the reasons as to why or why they cannot help you with legal proof if they cannot help. Ask that they respond within a reasonable amount of time like ten (10) working days from the post mark of the letter. You may also want to include a self-addressed, stamped envelope for their written answer.
You should be sure to tell them that if they cannot help, you next step will be to hire an attorney and seek and any all legal remedies available at law. Be sure to leave contact information other than your mailing address, such as telephone and email.
Kindest Regards XXXXX XXXXX Wishes...
