File a Grievance

How to Start the Grievance Process

What is a grievance?

A grievance results from a difference arising between the parties ( the Employer and the member / Union ), relating to the interpretation, application, administration or alleged violation of the Collective Agreement including any question as to whether a matter is arbitratable.

Filing a Grievance is a recognized way of solving all disputes over the interpretation of your collective agreement.

Failing to file a grievance allows the employer to violate the Collective agreement, and you are giving up hard won rights, which have been achieved in collective bargaining. If the Employer is allowed repeatedly to deny you your rights in the Collective Agreement, those rights may be lost forever.

The Grievance procedure in ONA is specified in the Hospital Collective Agreement Article 7
