When the company won't follow the union agreement, you really only have two options (and actually one must follow the other).
You have to file a union grievance and allow that to be completely processed. Once that is done, and it isn't resolved in your favor, you have to hire a local attorney to sue for breach of your contract in the state court. You can't sue though until you've attempted the internal grievance.
As a separation action, if you find that the union is not assisting you, you can file a complaint against them with the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) for failure to represent.
