Grievance Handling

This training is a must for stewards and other workplace representatives, or members who want to solve problems at the workplace and is open to members in PEI. You will find out what the law says about grievances, grievers and their representatives, and the protections built in for those who choose to use the grievance procedure to solve problems. 
You will develop: 
•    grievance handling
•    problem solving skills through "hands-on" exercises on gathering facts and resources 
•    analyzing a problem 
•    drafting grievance wording 
•    building a complete file, and presenting the case to the employer. You will work with case studies based on actual grievances, and in the process, improve your knowledge of case law.


Upon completion, participants will receive a $50 per diem for each day to cover the cost of parking and lunch. Loss of salary is also covered if required.
