can the union take my pension for working non-union

Resolved Question:

can the union take my pension for working non-union?

Expert:  Cedric replied 7 years ago.
No, so long as your pension has vested they cannot take your pension away for doing non-union work.

To do so constitutes a violation of the national labor relations act as an unfair labor practice.
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
So no matter how the union contract I have is worded they cannot according to federal law?
Expert:  Cedric replied 7 years ago.
No, if the union contract states that they can take away your pension payments if you work non-union, then since you agreed to that contact, you cannot sue since no federal law would have been violated.
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
How do I find out the agreement for my pension?
Expert:  Cedric replied 7 years ago.
By asking to see the collective bargaining agreement from the union.
