Not every problem is a grievance issue, but when a situation comes up in the workplace that you believe goes against your Local 812 contract, you should immediately notify your shop steward. Your shop steward will work with you to determine whether the issue is one that should be grieved and how to proceed.
A grievance is the union's formal legal process for filing a complaint against management for an illegal action. As a Local 812 member you are entitled to representation for grievances on the job.
Examples of grievances include: seniority bypass, wage issues, inappropriate disciplinary action, harassment, and wrongful termination.
