What is a Grievance?
  Simply put, a Grievance is a written complaint. More precisely, a grievance is a written complaint as opposed to an oral one against the actions, or lack of action, of the employer in matters relating to the member's terms and conditions of employment.

For a legitimate grievance to have occurred, there must have been violation of the member's rights on the job. It is your responsibility, as the Representative, to make the decision as to which rights have been violated and to determine whether or not a grievance exists.

Grievances grow out of problems, dissatisfaction, complaints and hopes of the membership. By their nature they involve the worker in day-to-day unionism. While no one likes grievances, they are an opportunity to involve people in the union and to show in a real, visual manner the strength of the union to address wrong doing and solve problems in the workplace.
