One of the managers decided he didn't like me, mainly because I was more highly educated than him, and I think he saw me as a threat to his job. He got me fired, breaking/ignoring at least 3 different "rules" that were meant to protect me. The union filed a grievance, and guess what happened?

Nothing.

The company ignored the grievance, I stayed fired, and nothing ever came of it. Now I'm wondering what the point of the union was.
That’s exactly what happened to Gearhead Wrenching buddy when I used to refer to him here as Welder buddy. He got fired for refusing to break OSHA regulations, filed a grievance with the union and they basically told him “sucks to be you”.
