Labor Studies | Grievance Representation
L220 | 18562 | Ashby, Steven


This is a web based course offered through OnCourse:

Class Number 18562; 3 cr.  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. Instructor: Steven Ashby, DLS, IUB.
