Grievance Committee

The Grievance Committee functions to ensure that the provisions of the URFA Collective Agreements are maintained and that all members of the Association are treated according to the principles of natural justice. It is the duty of Grievance Committee members to provide fair representation to all URFA members. Grievance officers are required to investigate complaints and attempt to resolve disputes informally. If a complaint cannot be resolved through informal discussion, grievance officers may make a recommendation to the Grievance Committee to proceed to the filing of a formal grievance. Although the Grievance Committee is not involved in the arbitration, it will be advised of the progress of the arbitration.

The Grievace Committee may also make a recommendation to the Executive Committee to proceed to arbitration in cases that are unresolved at grievance stage one or two. In arbitrations arising from appeals the Grievance Committee makes recommendations to the Executive. Policy Grievances may be formulated by the Executive Committee or by the Grievance Committee, and are filed by the Grievance Committee.

Grievance Committee members are elected for three-year terms, approximately one-third elected to take office each year, from the University of Regina, Campion College, Luther College, and the First Nations University. The Chair of the Grievance Committee is elected by the Executive Committee for a one year term – May 1 to April 30 in the following year. The Grievance Committee meets monthly.
