Rank and File Contract Ready Advisory Committee Meeting

Patrick Burns is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting for the Carpenters R&F Contract Ready Advisory Committee.
Time: Jul 6, 2022 05:00 PM Pacific Time (US and Canada)
Topic: Contract Ready Advisory Committee Meeting
Time: Jul 6, 2022 05:00 PM Pacific Time (US and Canada)

Carpenter Reps Jesse Scott Kandoll and John Lehman are going to give an educational on the grievance procedure. This is one aspect of the contract that every carpenter should have a handle on. Because every once in a while something happens on the job that will get under a carpenter’s crawl. And instead of getting extremely angry and blowing up, knowing how and when to file a grievance is how to make a wrong done to you on the job right. 

You know the “for instance” that your check is wrong. You worked more overtime than they paid you for. Cooler heads with the correct knowledge prevail. You get the money they owe you, and you still have your job. Maybe the most important tidbit in regards to grievances is that you only have a limited time to file a grievance. And not all periods to file a grievance are the same. On a public works project you may have only three days. With the Western Washington contract you have almost three weeks. Having a real grievance procedure, and a representative to help you is a major reason to be a dues paying union carpenter.
