On Oct. 15 and 16, an arbitrator heard a GSU member’s seniority grievance over an employer’s selection decision in filling a vacancy to a position within the union bargaining unit.
The arbitration hearing in Regina was attended by the union member as well as GSU staff representative Donna Driediger and general secretary Hugh Wagner who acted as counsel for the union. Employer representatives and counsel were also in attendance.
Arbitration is one of the culminating steps to grievances submitted on behalf of union members in relation to workplace issues where there are allegations of violation of members’ rights under their collective agreements.
Final and binding grievance arbitration is a process for resolving workplace issues that is available only to workers represented by unions. GSU has a long history of providing grievance arbitration access at no cost to workers represented by the union.
