“We do not believe any group of men adequate enough or wise enough to operate without scrutiny or without criticism. We know that the only way to avoid error is to detect it, that the only way to detect it is to be free to inquire. We know that in secrecy error undetected will flourish and subvert”. – J Robert Oppenheimer.
Just a theory of mine. To complex with too many variables to prove, but my gut tells me a lot of the ills facing America over the last 40 years is due primarily to the breakdown of the family staple.

I'm well aware that I had an possible grounds for a law suit. It wasn't necessary as I belonged to a union. The union resolved the issue. There is no other information.This has nothing to do with collective bargaining, unionization or RTW. IF your agreement was in writing as you state you had an EXCELLENT lawsuit unless there is other information regarding a legitimate reason you were not performing in compliance with said written agreement you failed to provide in you anecdote…
Why do you insinuate that it was a performance issue on my part? Nice attitude you have there. The company is always right, yeah? I was performing in compliance with the written agreement, my employer was not honoring automatic step level increase based on military experience. The issue was not at all confusing or even a matter of contention other than the fact that the someone in HR did not input the appropriate code into my file. The company then chose to ignore the mistake and repeatedly ignored it. The collective power of the union had a hell of a lot more power than one employee who was getting ****ed over. It was such a simple issue to fix that it was fixed and a check for backpay was written and delivered across town in less than 8 hours, after the union made a phone call in my behalf.
