I am currently in a union where I work. The union president

I am currently in a union where I work. The union president has locked all it's members out of contract negotiations, which it is against union bylaws, he had failed to hold quarterly union meetings, he had not held a mandatory elections for several positions when they become vacant including the vice presidents position. When attempts are made to contact the president they go ignored. Two members approached him on their time and he refused to even speak with them. I guess my question is, is there anything we can do legally? One member contacted the NLRB they basically advised him to vote him out, but we can't do that if elections are not held. Union bylaws call for elections for every 2 years.

The union trustees created a sham membership contract while

The union trustees created a sham membership contract while an existing agreement was in place. The second CBA was identical and created a year later without knowledge of the Managment trustees violating the the Pension fund rules and trust agreement. The second removing the defined benefit pension plan and replaced it with a 401k plan. This was done with a phones recognition letter with authorization cards signed by the union presidents family members. The cost to the multi employer fund has a cost of roughly 2-3 million dollars. What can we as members do. I reported this as when I becameAware of it as I was the Vice President and a trustee of the pension fund.

Would I be able to file a civil right's suit on an employer

Would I be able to file a civil right's suit on an employer for unlawful termination. The NLRB is involved and found my employer to be negligent. The union told me I would only get back enough money to make me whole again. this would include lost wages, medical bills, etc. I want to know if I can recover for pain and suffering. It was a devastating event that turned my world upside down. I had previously been diagnosed with PTSD, and this brought back a flood of anguish to me. I had worked or this employer for over 35 years. I testified at a NLRB hearing in Oakland. The hearing was to justify making Hospice a bargaining unit like the rest of the hospital. The employer stated I violated a HIPAA law. My attorney with the Union and the employers attorney discussed out in the hallway. The union attorney stated if we withdrew our petition to join the union, nothing would happen to me. However, if we didn't withdraw, I would be terminated. The employer followed through and had me fired. It has since been proved I did not violate any HIPAA laws. The NLRB and my employer were to appear in court, but it was postponed while the NLRB heard similar incidents with the employer..

Good afternoon. I am a union member part of the afl-cio and

Good afternoon. I am a union member part of the afl-cio and currently have an elected position on the eboard of my local union. I am currently getting ready to run for Business Agent in June. My Business Manager is also financial secretary and is telling me I am not allowed to have a current phone list of all union members and the BA now are have access to them now. I believe they are trying to keep me out of office. Also the way the elections are held only the BM and 2 retired members and the election company are allowed in the room to count the votes. They tell me and other people interested in running for office they are not allowed in the room. I believe this is not a fair playing field for anyone running for a paid position. My question to you are they correct or am I being lied to. A lot has happened in the past and all I want is what is fair for the membership and anyone seeking to get into office. Thank you.

I qualified wages from my employer but was

I qualified for retroactive wages from my employer but was denied those wages even when those in the same status as I were granted theirs. The only reason I can think of is that the employer doesn't think I have the will or the means to pursue this matter legally. I have exhausted all my avenues with my union and would like to know if this is a NLRB case or who I best consult with that takes up wage discrimination cases.Yours truely,JMc
