My name is***** was a superintendent for a union contractor for 7 years & a foreman for 6 years. Last September the company said they were phasing out my position. First they knew I needed back surgery 2 years ago. But I struggled through. Also my wife was having treatment for throat cancer. They asked to sign a severance. They knew I would have pay a $1,300 a month cobra. I had sign because of are health. I am learning from union brothers that was not so. The company is attacking my character & my life. One of owners called my home the beginning of august. Which violates the severance. I was let go because of my age & medical condition & my position that was phased out got filled by a younger coworker.
