What is the name of your state? Minnesota
I was Terminated by my Company outside whats written in our Contract back on Nov,10 2006 and am a member of United Steel Workers Union. I've won two appeals by the Company on my unemployment! With the Unemployment law judge stating I was terminated for reasons other then employee misconduct! The vote to arbitrate was %100 and have had my Arbitration hearing that everyone says went very well in our favor?
Now I'm just waiting for the Arbitrators decision(some time before june)that i believe will be in my favor since the Company Terminated my employment outside the guidelines of our Contract thus violating our collective bargaining agreement. The Union is asking for all backpay and Job reinstatement, that i would be quiet happy with. But" there has been damage to my credit and have collection companies calling so often i wont even answer my phone. I have not been able to take my kids to the doctor or dentist and i have had a ear infection for 2 months that has gone un-checked. Ive had problems even putting food on the table because unemployment is not near what i normally make.
My question is do i have the right too pursue legal action for Damages after Arbitration? Also how would that affect me going back to work with this Company?
