Article 15 of the AFUM Contract provides:
The Association and the University agree that they will use their best efforts to encourage the informal and prompt
settlement of any complaint that exists with respect to the interpretation or application of this Agreement. However, in
the event such a complaint arises between the University and the Association which cannot be settled informally, a
grievance procedure is described herein. Pursuant to this procedure it is the intent of both the Association and the University that grievances shall be handled in a timely manner and that neither party shall delay procedures unnecessarily.
If you have an issue that may develop into a grievance, your best option is to contact your AFUM grievance representative without delay. Our representatives have a record of resolving many matters through meetings with administrators without filing formal grievances. When such efforts fail, however, our contract specifies the procedures to follow, and there are strict time limits. Better safe than sorry!
