Shoptalk: Getting a Grip on Grievances

By Ryan Boyd, Day Ramp Steward

The grievance procedure plays a central role in defending our rights in a unionized workplace. However, grievances are often misunderstood, and members can feel apprehensive about filing. Many are fearful of retaliation, a concern that is not unwarranted. Having a fuller understanding of what grievances are — and what they are not — can help overcome some of the reluctance associated with this important right.
