Local 1202 Enhanced Stewards' Training

April 12, 2017


The Union will be providing all stewards in this Local a day of training in the following subjects:

1.    The Grievance Procedure and The Role of the Steward

This session will review the grievance procedure with an emphasis on resolving issues at Step 1 and Step 2. The focus will be on problem solving, dealing with difficult managers/supervisors and how to promote the grievance discussion. This will be interactive and involve the stewards in problem solving and their past experiences.

2.    The doctrine of Progressive Discipline and using Wm. Scott and KVP to assist you in the grievance procedure

This session will talk about the governing principles of the progressive discipline process and the use of the William Scott case in the discipline issues and how you can use it in your analysis and in problem solving with both your member and the grievor.

We will look at some of the more common grievance issues you run into.
