Does it seem likely that my employer is violating the contract?

Our union contract says internal candidates have to be considered first for vacant positions.

Well this vacant position pays like 55k/year.....'s not even that challenging of a was like "Recruiting Specialist" c'mon that's easy. It only said 2 years experience required.

Well the guy who got the job....

I found his profile and work history on linkedin ----

he apparently was external, not internal.

you expect me to believe no qualified internal candidates applied for it? they always apply for jobs like that.

We have many internal people who make 30k/year who would love to make 55k.

You really think none applied?

(this is a pretty large employer)

    Internal candidates have to be considered. Not hired. Considered.

    It's not about who applied it is about who is best qualified. A recruiter is a very specialized job.

    The contract says that internal candidates must be considered...not that they must be guaranteed the open position. No, I don't expect you to believe that no qualified people applied, because at least one person most likely did. That does not guarantee them the job if someone MORE qualified is available.

    Yes, I expect you to believe that.

    Yes, I really think none applied.

    Yes, I think the outsider was the better qualified candidate.  Employees have to be CONSIDERED.  The do NOT get preferential treatment.

    You don't understand union contracts.

    Sure but what good is a contract that can't be enforced ?
