Can I Be Denied Job Training or an Apprenticeship?

I work under a union contract in the movie business. I am a Republican and everyone else is a Democrat. Otherwise, everyone I work under is White. It seems crazy but my senior union member is discriminating against be because he doesn't like my political beliefs. He won't train me so that I can enter a better position. Is this legal?
