On Aug. 18th, I agreed to an LCA between my labor union and
On Aug. 18th, I agreed to an LCA between my labor union and the company I work for.We were prepared to arbitrate, but I took the advice of union counsel and agreed to the LCA even though I felt allegations made against me would do well at arbitration.On August 26th, my company informed me that I had violated the LCA from Facebook activity on my union's FB page that allegedly came from me. I don't believe I posted those comments, but just the same, I feel that any criticism toward my union or "union officers/ officials" did not violate my LCA.I agreed to release all claims against the company- including what I feel is a prime facia case of religious discrimination/ Retalition against the company.I am a flight attendant governed by the Railway Labor Act. The Labor Management Relatiinship Disclosure Actof 1959 explicitly states that union members have a right to disagree/ criticize union officials/ officers "without reprisal from the company or from union officials."I had my first disciplinary hearing. The company clearly did not believe me when I stated I did not post anything to the union's FB page. I did share I felt my soon to be ex- husband may have sabotaged my FB activity as he was quite angry that I released all EEOC claims ( he is Muslim. I work for an airline, I took extensive protective activity... I am certain you get where I am going with this).My company picks and chooses when it will assert itself in our union business. It's unfair. My union is weak however and seems reluctant to fight this.The union is taking my grievance. I am preparing to go through the process again.Incidentally, the state of Nevada charged the experience rating of the airline I work for after I applied and recieved unemployment insurance.I'll stick with my union representation for now, but an consisering hiring an employment attorney if necessary.Had I known that anything was posted that could anyway jeopardize my LCA on Aug. 24, I would have made darn certain that I revoked the agreement by 6pm on August 25th as I would have still been in the time frame where I could revoke the agreement.I maintain that I did not make any posts to my union's FB page. What I was shown had no date or time stamp. It also criticized "union officials" and their role in having me terminated as well as being the reason for my airline having its' experience rating charged.I'll continue with the grievance process as that is how I can hang on to my health insurance.Just wondering your legal opinion on the LCA.It's extensive, mentions I have filed for workman's comp as well making certain I would have any charges with the EEOC and other agencies in regards ***** ***** rights in the workplace.My estranged husband is an accountant. We may be going through divorce proceedings, but he is correct.It all seemed collusive and a set up on behalf of the company and my own union leaders.According to the EEOC and the Nevada DOL, it was in fact a few union officers/ officials that reported me for some very serious allegations.Contract proposals are in the table. A certain faction of our union blames me for leading a charge in voting down the last tentative agreement proposal presented to flight attendants.I live in Boise, ID. My company is headquartered in Dallas, TX. I was based and worked out of Las Vegas, NV.Any help is greatly appreciated.
