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 being discriminated against based on your race or because they believe you have a disability, then you need to file your complaint with the EEOC regarding discrimination. Also, if the union is not properly representing you and has violated their contract with you, then you have the right to file an unfair labor practices for breach of contract against them with the labor board and you would use a local labor law attorney for that type of complaint.
You can actually file both complaints at the same time, the discrimination complaint against the employer with the EEOC and the unfair labor practice against the union.
