Union Members Must Follow Union Administrative Grievance Procedures — Or Risk Losing Their Right to Recovery!

Too frequently, union members miss a critical step in filing claims for discrimination or other unlawful employment practice — filing a grievance with the local branch of their union. Many union members mistakenly believe they may file their claim with the union OR the state Human Relations Commission. However, union members must file claims through BOTH avenues. Other union members mistakenly rely on the assistance of a colleague to file the grievance with the union (or pass it along accordingly), yet it is never appropriately filed. If the grievance is not filed with the union within the strict time limitations, the employee waives any right to proceed with the lawsuit.
