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

Background: I was terminated from my position in June of

Background:I was terminated from my position in June of this year based on false allegations and also use of the FMLA. In my opinion, I was fired because of affiliation with the union and prior lawful union activity.A grievance was filed on my behalf by the Teamsters. A complaint was filed with the NLRB, who delegated the complaint to the Teamsters. I filed a complaint with Labor and Industries about the FMLA issue last week.State unemployment took my side on the matter and after a delay of a month I got unemployment benefits.The Teamsters rep contacted me a couple of weeks ago and said he told my boss to get me back to my job. The boss has chosen to stall and will not budge.Question:After the union grievance was filed , my ex-supervisor sent a document to the union which stated that I had resigned. He forged my signature on the document via an (obvious) computer image file. In my opinion,this was an effort to scuttle the grievance process.After sending an email to the union and to corporate complaining about the forgery I filed a complaint with the police.For some unknown reason the forgery unit sent the incident report to my local precinct burglary and theft unit. I was told by a clerk at the precinct that they won't be handling this and I need to contact an attorney.How at this point do I handle this? I would like some proof of forgery, am I going to have to hire someone to prove that? It's pretty obvious that my signature was added via an image file.
