Were you actually fired or are you still working under reduced hours?

Were you subject to discrimination as a member of one or more protected classes of employees or does your manager simply not like you which is not illegal?

You definitely need to consult with an employment lawyer. Sounds like you dont be long to any union. If so your manager does not even need a reason to demote or fire you. An employment lawyer can explain in detail why that is true.
