FAQ

I’ve recently filed a grievance, what is the procedure after filing?

 
Step 1- The Chief Steward takes the grievance up with the Supervisor or other designated representative of management in the district. If the Chief Steward and the Supervisor or other designated rep. are unable to dispose of the grievance, the Chief Steward then refers it to the Plant Shop Committeeman from his district. The Plant Shop Committeeman then takes the grievance up with the Area Manager or other designated management representative.
 
Step 2- If the Plant Shop Committeeman and the Area Manager or other designated representative of management does not dispose of the grievance, then the Plant Shop Committeeman refers the written grievance to the Plant Shop Committee.The Plant Shop Committee then delivers a written copy of the grievance to the Union Relations Supervisor and thereafter takes the grievance up with the Unions Relations Supervisor at a scheduled meeting.

Step 3- If the Plant Shop Committee and the Union Relations Supervisor are unable to dispose of the grievance, the Plant Shop Committee then refers the grievance to the proper higher officer or officers of the local union who may then take the grievance up with the Plant Manager, or his designated representative, after arranging a meeting. Upon request of the President of the local union the Regional Director of the Union for the area in which the plant is located, or a regularly designated representative of the Regional Director and one member of the Plant Shop Committee may attend the meeting.

Step 4- If the officers of the local union and the plant nanager, or his designated rep., are unable to dispose of the grievance, the officers of the local union then refer the grievance to the regional representative of the union for the area in which the plant is located. Within ten (10) days of such meeting the plant manager, or his designated rep., shall forward a statement of the parties’ understanding as to the disposition, if any, of the grievance discussed. The Regional Representative shall either dispose of the grievance or if the grievance merits appeal, refer it to the International Union which, if the grievance merits appeal, shall refer the grievance to the Appeal Board.
