A grievance may be filed when there is a violation of the collective bargaining agreement (contract), a memorandum of agreement, a district or administrative policy, or a state or federal law. Before a grievance is filed, we make every effort possible to handle the situation through open communication with the party who is committing the violation. If you feel you have a situation that requires a grievance to be filed, please discuss it with your senior building representative, who in turn will discuss the matter with our V.P. of Grievances (Ray Koretsky).
If a grievance is the action we need to take, you can use the attached form (with the assistance of your senior building representative) to file a Stage I grievance. Depending on the results of the Stage I grievance, Ray Koretsky will then take over if it is necessary to file a Stage II grievance. Please be aware that there are many technicalities and time frames associated with each stage in the process. Therefore, it is essential that your senior building representative and Ray Koretsky are involved in the filing from the beginning.
