A grievance may be filed by an Employee covered by this Agreement, individually or through the Association, or by the Association.

Grievance – Broader Scope   Grievances are defined as disputes arising between the employer and employees or between the Employer and the Union with respect to the interpretation and application of the one or more of the following: terms of the agreement; past practice; state, federal or local labor laws; personnel policies.
  6. 6. Early Resolution Considerations   Members see results quickly   Justice delayed is justice denied   Building relationship with counterpart   Written Grievance results in posturing and inflexibility   Issues that could be resolved become costly if not settled.   Act like an advocate! Think like an arbitrator
