  1. Best answer

    Sounds like you did the right thing by complaining. It also sounds like you've been harassed and retaliated against for making your complaint. I recommend you seek out an experienced employment lawyer ASAP. Most of us, myself included, will provide a free consultation.

You should be aware that no attorney-client relationship is established through this answer and none will be established without a personal consultation and the signing of an engagement agreement.


  2. Get into the HR and make a report. Get this series of incidents on record.


  3. Speak to management (over your supervisor's head) or HR right away. It sounds like this supervisor is abusive to employees and clients alike. That sort of conduct should not be tolerated.


  4. I do not see the downside to writing the letter your union requests, but you should also talk to the management or owners of your company. You should also contact an employment rights attorney.
