So I have worked the number of days needed to enter the union. I went to talk to hr (probably a mistake) to find out who I needed to get in contact to apply. The hr person tells me I can't because my supervisor has to "give" me seniority, i'm still a trainee apparently even though i worked the required days within the required time. So later I find my local teamster number and they tell me they never heard of that and that i can go to the local and fill out a application if i can't find a steward in my center. So is what hr told me true, can my sup hold my seniority hostage until he feels like it?
