Is there something i can do if my employer and my union both

is there something i can do if my employer and my union both are breaking hiring practice rules ( that are outlined in our CBA?) The union hasn't returned any of my emails or calls on this issue and it has been going on since sept 2016 until presently. It is like the union is for the company instead of the welfare and fairness of the employee, the union has not followed up on any issue. no investigation or anything and we have been paying dues for over 10 years to this union and not once have they stepped up to the plate to represent the employees in the Supply section of our company.JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: Yes ma'am, I am under contract in Ft. Stewart Georgia and was forced to pay dues to the union as a requirement for employment .. I A M is the union in which i speak ofJA: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?Customer: full time employment , the dol stated to me that Georgia is a right to work state and therefore can't be forced into paying dues to the union for basis of employmentJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: The issue we are having is the company, is hiring people from off the street for higher paying positions instead of promoting senior employees and hiring the lower grade jobs from the street. This is a direct violation of the CBA we have in place, in which it states all promotions will be based upon seniority first with a 90 day probationary period to prove you can do the job. Also we as senior employees havent been afforded time to train or even given the 90 days to prove we can do the job
