UNA Factoid #13: Grievances – The most effective way to right a workplace wrong

All UNA collective agreements are designed to protect your rights in the workplace.

Our agreements contain provisions clearly stating that if employees believe they are being disciplined, they are entitled to the representation of a workplace Local representative. If you think you are being disciplined by a supervisor or manager, you have the right to insist that a union representative be present.

The grievance procedure is the main way UNA resolves the concerns of employees it represents. If you feel you have been treated unfairly, or have any concern about your workplace, you should immediately contact your Local Representative or a UNA Labour Relations Officer.

When in doubt, call your union!

More information about the grievance process can be found in your Collective Agreement and on the UNA website – http://www.una.ab.ca
