It’s Not Grieveable, Now What?

Many grievance representatives say their most difficult task is communicating with members who believe they have a legitimate grievance when a thorough investigation shows otherwise.  While it can be hard to share this news, we must always remember that the grievance process is just one way to address our members’ issues.  In this webinar, you will:

  1. Learn how to explain the results of a grievance investigation
  2. Identify available alternatives to solve an issue outside of a grievance
  3. Create a plan to execute your chosen alternative

If you are a Local/Unit Officer or grievance representative, this online class is for you!  It is especially useful for those who have recently completed CSEA’s two-part grievance representation workshop.

It’s Not Grieveable, Now What?

Many grievance representatives say their most difficult task is communicating with members who believe they have a legitimate grievance when a thorough investigation shows otherwise.  While it can be hard to share this news, we must always remember that the grievance process is just one way to address our members’ issues.  In this webinar, you will:

  1. Learn how to explain the results of a grievance investigation
  2. Identify available alternatives to solve an issue outside of a grievance
  3. Create a plan to execute your chosen alternative

If you are a Local/Unit Officer or grievance representative, this online class is for you!  It is especially useful for those who have recently completed CSEA’s two-part grievance representation workshop.

It’s Not Grieveable, Now What?

Many grievance representatives say their most difficult task is communicating with members who believe they have a legitimate grievance when a thorough investigation shows otherwise.  While it can be hard to share this news, we must always remember that the grievance process is just one way to address our members’ issues.  In this webinar, you will:

  1. Learn how to explain the results of a grievance investigation
  2. Identify available alternatives to solve an issue outside of a grievance
  3. Create a plan to execute your chosen alternative

If you are a Local/Unit Officer or grievance representative, this online class is for you!  It is especially useful for those who have recently completed CSEA’s two-part grievance representation workshop.
