I work for a very large company that does government contracts. For approximately 8/9 months I have been targeted by some white Male coworkers and union representatives: I have had personal property bothered/displaced:work equipment moved and replaced with dirty grimy oil non-functional equipment: trash dumped on my workstation: bogus safety concerns reported: Integrity concerns reported to the Corporate office and investigated(to which there was no findings and the Integrity manger in formed that they have knowledge of retaliation that was being looked into by the legal team); they going through file cabinets any where else to pull my work to find anything they consider non-compliant with government rules: constantly called to the office because of these individuals: going to front office demanding reprimand anything they consider non compliant: chief union Stewart canvassing white employees to see if the felt that the black female workers are being some bias when it comes to disciplinary actions: slandering me to white employees etc. My complaint will now be taken over by the Compliance and Integrity office at the Corporate office. Legal and Integrity Teamwill be onsite soon
Yes, you need to talk to an attorney about discrimination and retaliation. You are also a "customer" of the union and need to demand to speak the union attorney or president about the behavior.
In addition to speaking with an attorney, I would recommend that you go on the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission's website, www.eeoc.gov to gain a better understanding of your rights.
