I work in Arizona, a right to work state. The company I work for has a Union in place. I have worked here for 20 + years. Our Union is the local I-60 IAFF. We have not had a contract with our Company since 2012. We have been in ongoing negotiations since our previous contract expired. The Company has chosen to uphold parts of the old contract and drop others until we come to an agreement. I'm sure you can guess the parts they dropped have to do with money.
Our Union has taken them to court via the NLRB 4 times over items they have dropped. Each time the Union wins and the Company is ordered to pay up. They refuse saying its only the Labor Board, the decision isnít worth the paper its written on.
The Company has also gone behind the Unions back offering employees a reduced payment option if they just sign here.
My question is this. I am not a Union member but as im sure you know we all are under that same Union umbrella. I want what is owed me. The NLRB ruled that it was an unlawful reduction in pay. Since we are now into year 3 of negotiations, the Company has lost 4 times and has now appealed it AGAIN, what can I do to get my money from the Company?
