The grievance procedure is located in the collective agreement under Article 9.
If you feel that there has been a violation of the collective agreement relating to the interpretation, application or administration, as a member – YOU can file a grievance.
You have 5 full working days to inform a Steward that there has been a collective agreement violation (time of incident), in order for the Steward to fill the appropriate documentation to management/Human Resources.
The next steps include:
Step 1 – verbally filling the grievance with management/Human Resources
Step 2 – written submission to Department Head/Human Resources
Step 3 – formal meeting with the member, union representative and management
