Hello again and thank you for your reply. Your union rep can assist you in filing a grievance for your suspension, that is what you pay dues for. The union is required to represent you in good faith in these matters. You have to use that process to grieve the suspension, it is required under the bargaining agreement.
You should consider filing a racial discrimination complaint with your EO office. You must do so and give them an opportunity to investigate and resolve your complaint. You might also want to add the disability discrimination
issue, if you think your new manager or the company is treating you this way because of your disability.
If the employer does not resolve your EO complaint in the way you believe it should be, then you can file a discrimination complaint with the EEOC
and sit down with a local employment/labor
law attorney to discuss the details of what is going on with this and the suspension to plan your next course of action, which could include filing suit.
You will have to see how your grievance comes out, and use that system which might ultimately require arbitration.
Please let me know if you have any related follow up questions. would be glad to assist you further if I can.
