This session will review the grievance procedure with an emphasis on resolving issues at Step 1 and Step 2. It will also cover the role of the steward in investigative meetings. This will be interactive and involve the stewards in problem solving and their past experiences.

2.                  Progressive Discipline:  What it is, the governing principles.

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 in the grievance process both with members and with the Employer.
