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.

As we discussed yesterday, I sent the board a letter

Hi Allen,This is David Frank. As we discussed yesterday, I sent the board a letter requesting a hearing regarding the religious discrimination at work, and a written letter of how they plan to repair this with me, within 5 business days of the letter. The president responded today with an email, I am one of three items on the agenda. I am the first. The second is about revisiting the demands they put on me, in the letter they had me sign. They also want my time sheet brought to the meeting to approve the hours that I worked, even though I am on salary. The problem with this, is that if I don't get my timesheet in by 2:00 on the 31st, I will not get my paycheck on Friday, which is payday. I can tell by the agenda, that my issues are not being taken seriously, because the things they asked me to do in the letter, are the issues being discussed at the board meeting. My question is, how do I handle this? I wanted an unbiased hearing with them to hear my grievances, before consequences. Again, I am presumed guilty without being heard. Since we are a non-profit company, and our meetings are open to anyone, can I bring a witness to take notes on my behalf. I feel I have no one on my side. I feel that my letter had no impact. I look forward to your response.Thank you,David Frank

I am an american working in Dubai, in the United Arab

I am an american working in Dubai, in the United Arab Emirates. I worked up until today for ***************** based in New Brunswick, NJ. According to them, I was terminated due to poor performance, but have evidence otherwise. I was subjected to religious discrimination and wrongfully terminated based on their budget cuts, but managed to say it was poor performances. In the UAE you can only sue in the labor courts, not in the civil. In the labor, i can only sue them for example for the sign on bonus they never paid, but that is it. I cannot sue them for wrongful termination. My question, is can I sue them in the USA?

My boss is a Christian, I knew that when I got hired. I grew

My boss is a Christian, I knew that when I got hired. I grew up in a Christian and have many Christian values, but I don't believe in organized religion. During what is supposed to be our sales training meetings our managers often show religious based motivation videos and often requests we have a word of prayer. It makes me uncomfortable and I feel singled out when I don't participate. I believe my lack of participation has also resulted in me not getting leads from sales managers, and feel I will lose my job if refuse to participate. Is this legal?

I have an active EEOC discrimination case against my

I have an active EEOC discrimination case against my company...I am not technically fired from the company, but I am drawing unemployment from them. 3 months after my last assignment ended I received a call from my company offering me a position. They are well aware of the lawsuit against them and yet have offered me a job...I detect shadiness and the question is... if I accepted the job would that null my suit? I'm trying to figure out why would they even WANT to offer me a job knowing I am suing them. I am drawing unemployment, so am I obligated to accept the job from the company I'm accusing of discriminating against me? Oh and by the way...I need an employment lawyer. I'm suing for sex, religious discrimination and retaliation. All well documented.
