This grievance fact sheet is designed to assist Stewards and local unions to keep a written record of what a grievance is about and what happens to it as it is processed through the various steps of the grievance procedure.
It is an important document and should be completed with care and accuracy. This document provides the union with a complete history of the case, including notes from the grievance meetings. It provides details about the grievance which may otherwise be overlooked or forgotten about. A copy of the completed fact sheet should be forwarded to the CUPE Representative once the grievance is referred to arbitration.
When the grievance is finalized, the completed fact sheet should be kept, along with the grievance form and Minutes of Settlement. These documents should be filed as per local union practices.
