Frequently Asked Questions / How does a grievance work?

A grievance is a claim based upon an event or condition which involves the interpretation, meaning or application of any of the provisions of any of the Unit A, B, D or E contracts.  The purpose of this procedure is to secure at the lowest appropriate administrative level, equitable solutions to the problems which may from time to time arise affecting the welfare or working conditions of teachers.  Both parties agree that these proceedings will be kept as informal and confidential as may be appropriate at any level of the procedure.  A detailed description of the procedure and its 3 levels can be found on pages 3-9 of the Unit A contract.  If you feel you have a grievance, read the contract, first, then check with your building representative who will connect you with Michele Foley, CEA Grievance Chairperson.
