i am a union member. i have two unrelated question1 - i was put on a job with no CBA. i was never told this prior to accepting the job but learned later...dont they have to tell you beforehand if there is no cba and also would our constitution even be in effect on that job( they are bringing us up on stupid charges) 2 - if i post something on my FB page about a member and it in no way mentions or references our union, the job site, the international etc does the union have jurisdiction to discipline me for that? my take is that the member can sue me civilly if he wishes but it is not the union's business. could u please reference the appropriate law? i think latter is art 1 of the lmrda not sure about the first question
