Resources for Lecturers:Grievances
The grievance is one of the most important tools available to workers in a collective bargaining agreement environment, but it is also one that should be used as a last resort. Our experience is that, once a grievance has been filed, all other avenues for resolving an issue for a faculty member in a timely and meaningful way have been closed.
Grievances, because of the rigid nature of the process, can take 1-2 years to be decided and there is no guarantee that the outcome will be resolved to the satisfaction of the faculty member. This is why we want to address any issue as soon as possible, which means the faculty member must contact the union as soon as possible. Contact the faculty rights chair (or any other Eboard member) as soon as you think that there is a problem, so we can see if it can be resolved before a grievance needs to be filed.
If you have any question or issue that you feel might be ultimately grievable, email (from a non-Cal Poly email address) the faculty rights chair, Neal MacDougall, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
