Labor Studies | Grievance Representation
L220 | 7549 | Ashby, Steven


The following is a web based course offered through the OnCourse
System.

This is a practical course that examines how a union steward
represents workers on the job, including how to investigate, write,
and negotiate grievances, and how to utilize the law to defend
workers’ rights on the job.  Using case studies, we will discuss how
a steward would respond to common grievances such as insubordination,
absenteeism, seniority, and racial and sexual harassment.  The course
will explore effective organizing tools – collective action around
grievances, contract campaigns, and work-to-rule campaigns – which
mobilize the membership to win grievances and strong contract
agreements.
