Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only. Please feel free to ignore any phone service request, the expert does not send those unless asked by customer and they are sent by the site automatically.

Unfortunately, this is what happens when you have a union representing you, they get to make decisions for the whole membership, even though some members may be hurt by the decisions the union makes and some may be helped. IT is up to the union members to elect people who will represent the member's best interests. If the union negotiated this deal though, the workers need to pursue their union leadership to let them know they are not happy and to vote them out next election, but sadly the members are stuck with the deal their union made for them.

Please do not forget to leave positive feedback by clicking on the 5 stars at the top of your page, as the experts are not employees of the site and get no credit for spending time with customers unless they leave positive feedback. Thank you.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
