You need to handle these situations carefully, but you do not have to let the union boss you around or threaten your business.

Union members must go through their union as the sole and exclusive remedy for dealing with conflict between themselves and their employers. The union will decide which cases to bring to the company, either coming to a compromise everyone can agree on or forcing it to agree. Frequently, compromise is a better route to take as it is less expensive for everyone involved and can resolve the issue more expediently.
