Generally, a grievance exists when an employee, a group of employees, or the bargaining unit believes a violation of the collective bargaining agreement has occurred. Both the district and the bargaining unit encourage open discussion of grievances and the use of a variety of non-adversarial problem-solving techniques. Employees are encouraged to discuss work-related concerns with their immediate supervisor on an informal basis, and most issues can be resolved in this manner. However, if an employee finds they are not able to resolve a concern through informal discussion, they may initiate the grievance procedure as outlined in their collective bargaining agreement. Employees are protected from discrimination, coercion, restraint, or reprisal in initiating either an informal or formal action.

Employees should consult their union representative and specific Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) for details regarding the grievance procedure.
