How to File a Grievance

Refer to Article 46 of the Collective Bargaining Agreement for additional information but, in a nutshell,  a “grievance” means any complaint:
a.  by any employee concerning any matter relating to the employment of the employee;
b.  by the NTEU concerning any matter relating to the employment of any employee; or
c.   by the NTEU or the agency concerning:
(i)  the effect or interpretation, or a claim of breach of this Collective Bargaining Agreement; or
(ii)   any claimed violation, misinterpretation, or misapplication of any law, rule or regulations
affecting conditions of employment as such term is defined in 46.3.

To be timely, a grievance must be filed within 15 workdays of the occurrence of the matter out of which the grievance arose.

When you decide to file a grievance, contact the Chief Steward who can assign a steward to your case.
