Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
If you are in a union contract have you filed a grievance with your union yet? If so what has your union stated?

Thank you for your reply.
He has to file a grievance with his union, those are his rights and he needs to avail himself of those rights. If the union is pursuing the grievance and he has not received his check he needs to ask again. If he is not getting his check and the union is not getting his payment in a reasonable time for what they owe him under contract, then he would need to file a complaint for unfair labor practice with the state labor board as that would be his only recourse if the union will not back him up.
