This is more a labor law question but Employment Law was the closest category I could find. I am currently represented by an IAM, machinists union, at work. They also represent two local lodges at our employer's other sites out of State. We have always negotiated our contracts independently of each local with the company so each site had their own collective bargaining agreement. This past contract we were all merged into a single contract and negotiated as one collective bargaining unit. My question is, there is ample interest at our local in going back to independent contract negotiations. Is this possible and how do we proceed?

I belong to a union which has discriminated against my classification of worker in the work unit...a newly ratified collective bargaining agreement is extremely discriminatory towards us - denies us any right to exercise seniority, while all other work unit employees may do so. We have filed a duty of fair representation action with the NLRB, which is in progress.There has been retaliation against me, and another employee due to our objection and resistance to this discrimination.Do we have legal recourse thru the Courts, if the NLRB does not provide remedy??

I was recently suspended from work with no explanation. I tried to get information from my boss and the union but have gotten no reason as to why just that it's without pay. I got a text from an employee asking if I was ok and that security came around with walkie talkies because of a disgruntled employee. What can I do to find out why and if I'm being labeled a disgruntled employee.
