Got a grievance?
1 Know your contract
Your union contract is strong weapon for defending your rights at work. Your bosses must follow the contract whether they like it or not. Read your contract and discuss it with your co-workers. Don't have a copy? Contact your union steward or representative and ask for a copy.
2 Take Action
When the boss violates your contract, don't wait for someone else to act. Talk to your co-workers, and speak up to management. Most issues can be resolved by you and your co-workers addressing the issue right away with management directly.
3 File A Grievance
If the company doesn't respond when you and your co-workers speak up, then contact your union steward or representative to file a grievance. This means the company has violated the union contract. Make sure to file the grievance within the time limits in your contract.
