LSTU-L 220 Grievance Representation Class Number 14198; 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: Tyler Brown.
