The grievance process provides members with a fair and accountable means of challenging decisions made unilaterally by management or hospital administration that are deemed unfair, without just cause, and/or violate our contract.
The process requires administrators to negotiate in good faith with union members to resolve a dispute and attempt to reach a settlement. If a settlement cannot be reached, our union can choose to take the matter before an arbitrator, who then has the authority to make a final and binding decision.
Your union Stewards, the Grievance Chair, and Grievance Committee exist to provide ongoing support throughout the process. The procedure for filing a grievance is not complicated, nor should it be intimidating. If you have any questions regarding a potential grievance, you should reach out to your Grievance Chairs, Sarah Ferguson (email@example.com), and Kelly Borch (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any questions.
