We had CIV HR involved, everything documented. The union fought until the end.
When you pay for a lawyer isn't that what you expect him/her to do?? Think of the Union as just a lawyer, and if things took that long your 'lawyer' [management] sucked huge at their jobs and just kept getting bitch slapped by smarter folk.

Unions don't 'save' jobs, they just ensure people rights are adhered too, follow the proper steps and all the Union can do is negotiate a bit of a parachute. [Union steward for over 30 years]

Fair enough. From the other side of the bridge it looked a lot like the union protecting a liability.

Actually you have it totally ass backwards,.......you gotta' get pretty high up in the Union chain before you get paid to do it. In that case folks who's job it is to management got bitch slapped by VOLUNTEERS.

Oh I know, have gone to several meetings holding my nose, and I know of at least one woman who resigned as a Steward rather then rep another woman who went the other way when staff were attacked on a range.

Unions have a legal duty of fair representation. Everyone should get backed to the extent of ensuring proper due process. Even the shitbirds. If someone is actually terrible, the documentation should easily exist to see them terminated. It just takes time and proper process.
