Does the employer have at least 15 employees? Do you think the real reason you were denied the promotion was based on your age, gender, race, etc?
I see. Under the NLRA, employers cannot discriminate or retaliate against your for union activity. You need to consult with a labor law attorney in your area about your options; ie, sending a demand letter to the employer that it remedy the situation, or filing a lawsuit for damages.
The state and county bar associations should be able to refer you to an attorney. Ask for one that provides a low cost or free consultation.
Please let me know if you need additional information.
