I am a Longshoreman Mechanic with the ILWU local 13. 24 Men were laid off from a "steady" position. 18 were laid off correctly in order per the collective bargaining contract, with union approval Days later 6 of us were cherry picked and laid off out of order without union approval. I was at the top of the 24 laid off in regards ***** ***** there are 20 something men that are still working that had less seniority than I. Is there any legal options I have to fight this?
JA: Because employment law
varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?
JA: Has anything been filed or reported?
Customer: The Union was all up in arm, pounding there chest when it first happened, I and filed a complaint collectively for the 6 of us. I realize now that was all for show, as it know has been swept under the carpet. I believe I was the only one of the 6 that filed my own complaint agenst the company, at the same time the company filed 22 complaints against me. 13 years I went from 0 to 22 complaints. Days following communicating through the Labor
Relationship Committee Rep., the company offered to remove the 22 complaints against me if I removed the 1 complaint on them, as I would be deregister for life with 22 complaints.
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: my favorite color is blue and I know my social security number by heart ;)
