I belong to a union which has discriminated against my

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 work at Triumph Composite Systems in Spokane, Wa. Our

Hi! I work at Triumph Composite Systems in Spokane, Wa. Our current union contract was to expire on May10, 2016. At negociations the company failed to give the union crucial information needed to bargain with. The company has also approached union members to work for them should a strike occur. They left the bargaining table before an impasse was reached. On May 9th the union told the company that the vote came back to strike and they were ready to bargain anywhere anytime. On May9th the company called a meeting and told us that we were still under contract until The following day at midnight and the company said they have no plans to go back to the bargaining table anytime soon. On the morning of May 10th third shift workers were told not to return to work for thier regular shift to finish the contract. They were told they would be paid. On May10th 2nd shift workers were told to leave before the contract ended and they would be paid. The union has now filed proper paperwork for unfair labor practice. The company had other workers ready to work. My question us this, am I on an unfair labor practice or am I on lockout because we werent allowed to finish contract??? Or is it both??? Thanks in advance!! On the picket line. IAM

The second CBA was identical and created a year later without knowledge of the Managment trustees violating the the Pension fund rules and trust agreement. The second removing the defined benefit pension plan and replaced it with a 401k plan. This was done with a phones recognition letter with authorization cards signed by the union presidents family members. The cost to the multi employer fund has a cost of roughly 2-3 million dollars. What can we as members do. I reported this as when I becameAware of it as I was the Vice President and a trustee of the pension fund.

I am a government employee(female) GS-6 and I was told by my

I am a government employee(female) GS-6 and I was told by my supervisor I would be backfilling an GS-7 position because my co-worker (male) was selected to train for another position GS-9. Well, I discovered he was given official government document SF-50 which gave him the right to be paid for that position, but I was NOT given an SF-50, matter-of-fact the Head Supervisor told me Government Personal Office don't process those forms any longer therefore he will NOT be able to pay me even though I'm doing additional higher grade tasks . I'm hurt and confused, because my co-worker (male) received one and not me he also got paid and not me?? What can I do??
