Recently one of our staff reps received a call from a member about a disciplinary action the member had received. Unfortunately it was past the the timeline in the collective agreement to file a grievance so our member was out of time to appeal the disciplinary action.
Don’t wait to contact the union with employment problems or problems in your workplace. It is important that members contact us prior to the timeline deadlines in their collective agreements.
Even if you aren’t sure you have a grievance or that you actually want to file one, talk to your GSU staff rep. Our staff reps can help you make an informed decision by explaining your options and the consequences of filing or not filing a grievance. In the end, whether you choose to file a grievance is a decision only you can make.
Check your collective agreement or contact your GSU staff rep for information on timelines for filing a grievance.
GSU helps sort things out. If you need advice or interpretation about the terms and conditions of your collective agreement, call your GSU staff rep. Contacting GSU does not mean you are obligated to file a grievance and we will not contact your employer or act on your behalf without consultation, direction, and approval from you.
