Course Reflection- Next Steps for Stewards: Organizing Around the Grievance Process
Each week, as part of our School Blog, we’ll hear from a student enrolled in the course about the topics being covered, what they’re learning, and more! This week’s reflection is written by Ross McDonagh, International Brotherhood of Teamsters, Local 25.
So far in our class, instructor Tom Breslin has taught us many things about the grievance process such as: the nine tests for just cause, how arbitrators are picked, and most importantly the “organizing model” for unions. This past week, we started to delve deeper into organizing members around a specific grievance– in this case, a termination grievance.
