Customer Question
I was offered and excepted...
I was offered and excepted a job 11-18-14 and my first day on the job was 12-15-14. It was explained to me I had to go through a back-ground check drug testing and the job was non-union and would soon be added to the union. My salary would the management salary the only salary at the time and any future raises would be negotiated by the union. The employer and union negotiated a step salary for this position that was signed by the union on 11-19-14 and the employer 12-9-14. The management salary was equal to the last step in the salary schedule which I have been paid for the last year. The states all employees hire before the signing will at the last step and after the signing will follow the schedule. The union is saying I was hire after the signing, I am being over paid and wants to free my salary. The employer is saying my hiring process started before the signing and should received the negotiated raises. Not receiving a raise for 4 years was not what I agreed to leaving one employer to come to this employer. Do I have any recourse.

The controlling date is the date you were hired relative to the wages offered then, not when you began negotiation. If you meet resistance on pay, you should have union assistance, but may also involve local counsel to negotiate for you. Kindly let me know if you want a pair of directories for that?

Posted by JustAnswer at customer's request) Hello. I would like to request the following Expert Service(s) from you: Live Phone Call. Let me know if you need more information, or send me the service offer(s) so we can proceed.
Employment Lawyer: Infolawyer, Lawyer replied 2 years ago

you were hired from what you mentioned in time to be included so you need directly or through counsel to demand from the union and its legal department to be added to its appeal.
