Update History

Stewards Update: Feb 2022 
Grievance /ˈɡrēvəns/
If a member or the Union think that the employer is not abiding by the collective agreement, the Union may decide to engage in the Grievance Process (Collective Agreement Article 21). This process is a formalized set of conversations to help us come to an agreement with the employer about how to interpret and apply the collective agreement in specific situations. While this process can sound intimidating, as a member, your main job is to tell us your experiences and our well-trained Stewards will navigate the process for you.
HOW THE GRIEVANCE PROCESS TYPICALLY WORKS:
STEP ONE
Reach out to one of CORFA’s stewards (see Executive & Committees tab) by email, phone or in person and discuss your situation.
STEP TWO
CORFA stewards bring the issue to the attention of the employer. This might take the form of a discussion between the affected employee (the grievor), the union (CORFA) and the employer (COTR).
STEP THREE
If a discussion is not enough to resolves the difference, the grievance will be put in writing, stating what the issue is, how it relates to the collective agreement and the proposed resolution.
STEP FOUR
If the response at step 3 does not remedy the problem, a written grievance will be sent to a higher level of management.

Arbitration /ˌärbəˈtrāSH(ə)n/

Arbitration
When grievances cannot be resolved at a local level, FPSE Staff Representatives work with locals through to arbitration, an independent third party process where a decision binding on both parties will be issued.
Grievances can be complicated situations that require significant time and effort to resolve.
Your union will represent you through the process and do its best to get a satificatory resolution to the problem.
