Workshop Descriptions

Local Government/Private Sector Grievance
This six-hour basic workshop teaches activists how to work with their contract, examine the grievance procedure and understand their role and responsibility as a Grievance Representative in protecting the rights of bargaining unit members in the workplace. Completion of this workshop certifies activists to process grievances, provided they are officially appointed by their Local or Unit President.
Participants will be able to:
Define, investigate and write grievances.
Distinguish the difference between a contract grievance and a non-contract grievance.
Use the grievance procedure to process violations of the collective bargaining agreement.
Identify the actions to be taken to ensure that the Duty of Fair Representation is upheld.
Prepare and present a grievance at the first step.

Who should attend: This workshop is designed for Local/Unit officers, stewards, and newly appointed grievance representatives who have little or no experience in handling grievances. It is also a valuable refresher for grievance representatives who do not regularly process grievances. This workshop is required for certification to process grievances in CSEA.
