I know that to sue the Union for misrepresentation via PERC I had only six months. My main question is this. Can I retain my own Lawyer and still sue the Union for gross misrepresentation? I was terminated as a Fire Fighter and my Union was going to file a grievance but they filed 31 after the allotted time so I never got to appeal my termination. I questioned them for weeks and months about what was going on but they would never respond and when I did speak to them they said we are working on it, give us time. As soon as the six months was up they told me sorry, we cant do a thing for you, hit bricks. I questioned them numerous times getting no answers now they will not talk to me saying talk to our Lawyer and cease from contacting us. Can I hire my own Lawyer and go after them?
