How long did you work there for?Are you in a union?
Why does the union say there is nothing they can do?
It is not managing when the person is unfair and lies about your employment record.
I suggest you tell the union that they owe you a duty of fair representation and that you require them to represent you fairly since you cannot sue the employer yourself.
What you can do if the union won't help is bring a complaint against the for unfair representation and seek damages from them.
As well, while you cannot sue the employer you can sue the manager personally for defamation. If someone tells lies about you to others and this harms your reputation you can sue them for damages.
So it sounds like your next step should be to consult with a lawyer face to face and then decide how you want to approach this.
Does that help as a starting point?
I think that makes a lot of sense.
I hope this works out.

I was just thinking about our conversation and have been wondering if you have thought of any further follow-up questions for me.
