A “grievance” to be considered under this procedure shall be presented in writing at Level Two by the Grievant and his/her representative no later than fifteen (15) calendar days following the event giving rise to the grievance. The number of days indicated at each level shall be a maximum. Every attempt is to be made to resolve the grievance as quickly as possible. Time limits may be extended by mutual agreement in writing.

2. A Grievant may present and process his/her grievance personally or through an appropriate representative. The Grievant shall have the right to have a representative appear with him/her commencing with Level Two and all subsequent levels.

3. Should the grievance result from action taken by the Superintendent or the Board, a grievant may present the grievance initially at Level Three of the Grievance Procedure, within fifteen (15) days following the event giving rise to the grievance.

C. Procedure

1. Level One:

Any employee who has a grievance shall discuss it first with his/her immediate supervisor in an attempt to resolve the matter informally at that level.

2. Level Two:

If, as a result of the informal discussion with the immediate supervisor, the matter is not resolved to the satisfaction of the Grievant within five (5) school days, the Grievant shall set forth his/her complaint in writing to the immediate supervisor stating:

a. The nature of the grievance.

b. The nature and extent of the loss, injury or inconvenience.

c. The results of previous discussions.

d. His/her dissatisfaction with decisions previously rendered.

The immediate supervisor shall communicate his/her decision to the Grievant in writing within five (5) school days of receipt of the written complaint.

3. Level Three:

The Grievant may appeal the immediate supervisor’s decision to the Superintendent of Schools within five (5) school days of the receipt of that decision. The appeal to the Superintendent must be made in writing, following the outline used in Level Two. Within five (5) school days following receipt of the written appeal by the Superintendent, he/she shall have a conference with the Grievant and his/her representative, if any. The Superintendent shall attempt to resolve the matter as quickly as possible, and within a period not to exceed ten (10) school days following the day of his/her conference with the Grievant he/she shall communicate to the Grievant his/her decision in writing.

4. Level Four:

If the grievance is not resolved to the Grievant’s satisfaction, he/she may request a review by the Board of Education. The request shall be submitted in writing through the Superintendent of Schools within five (5) school days following the receipt of his/her decision by the Grievant. The Superintendent shall forward the request along with all related papers to the Board of Education. The Board, or a duly appointed committee thereof, shall review the grievance and, at its option, shall hold a hearing with the Grievant and his/her representative, if any, within thirty (30) calendar days of receipt of the request. The Board may make a verbatim stenographic record of the hearing. The Board shall render a decision in writing setting forth its reasons to the Grievant within forty-five (45) calendar days of receipt of the written appeal.

5. Level Five:

a. If the Grievant is not satisfied with the disposition of his/her grievance at Level Four and his/her grievance deals with a violation, misinterpretation, or inequitable application of any of the express written terms of the locally negotiated agreement, the Grievant may request of the Board that his/her grievance be submitted to arbitration not later than fifteen (15) school days after receipt of the decision by the Board.

b. Within ten (10) school days after such request for arbitration, the Board and the Grievant and/or his/her representative shall attempt to agree upon a mutually acceptable arbitrator. If the parties are unable to agree upon an arbitrator, they shall jointly request the American Arbitration Association to appoint an arbitrator.

c. The arbitrator shall confer with the representatives of the Board and of the Grievant and shall proceed with a hearing and submit a written report in the shortest possible time setting forth his/her findings of fact, reasoning and conclusions on the issues submitted. The arbitrator shall be without power of authority to make any decision which requires the commission of an act prohibited by law or which violates the terms of this Agreement. The decision of the arbitrator shall be submitted to the Board and the Grievant and shall be binding on both parties. Said binding arbitration shall only apply in cases where a grievance deals with a violation, misinterpretation or inequitable application of any of the express written terms of the locally negotiated agreement.

d. The cost for the services of the arbitrator, including per diem expenses and actual and necessary travel, subsistence expenses and the cost of the hearing room shall be borne equally by the Board and the Grievant. Any other expenses incurred shall be paid by the party incurring same.

e. If time is lost by any employee due to arbitration proceedings, necessitating the retention of a substitute, the employee shall not suffer loss of pay or be penalized in any way. A maximum number of four (4) employees may participate in an arbitration proceeding without suffering loss of pay, said four (4) employees to include the Association President, and up to two (2) witnesses for the Grievant, provided said witnesses actively participated in Levels 4 or 5 of the Grievance Procedure.
