Grievance Process

A grievance is an allegation by an employee or the union that here has been a breach, misinterpretation or improper application of terms of this agreement. An arbitrary or discriminatory application of or failure to act pursuant to the applicable policies or rules of a Board of Trustees, or applicable regulations or statutes which establish terms and conditions of employment.

The Office of Employee Relations handles all contractual grievances filed by the various collective bargaining units or its members.

AFT grievances are filed with the President and copied to the Office of Employee Relations. All other grievances are filed with the individual who has responsibility to correct the grievance, and copied to Employee Relations. When a grievance is filed, every attempt will be made to resolve the grievance at each level.
