Grievance Web Page

QUFA’s Grievance Web site contains a wealth of information for the use of QUFA Members.

I have been so busy with arbitration preparations and hearings this summer and autumn that I’ve not had the opportunity to write a substantial “Grievance Corner” for this issue of QUFA Voices.

So, I decided it would be a good time to remind you about resources that are already on QUFA’s Grievance Web site: www.qufa.ca/member-services/main/grievances/

The box labelled “Forms and Information” contains links to materials and resources that all QUFA Members should apprise themselves of if they are experiencing a conflict and/or are thinking about contacting QUFA with a complaint. There is also contact information for the Queen’s-QUFA Conflict Resolution Service, information about what the grievance process looks like, overview information on arbitrations, and protocols on how some situations are handled.

The box labelled “Grievance Corner from QUFA Voices” contains back issues of this column, dating back to September 2011. Click the plus sign (+) to see the complete list of “Grievance Corner” columns. Scan the titles to locate a past “Grievance Corner,” or just to see the variety of topics we have covered in the “Grievance Corner.”

I keep an ongoing list of potential “Grievance Corner” topics and have explored Member-supplied ideas in the past, so please do not hesitate to contact me with your thoughts.

I look forward to hearing from you!
