GRIEVANCE AND ARBITRATION PROCEDURE

A. Definition

A "grievance" is an appeal by a secretary/clerk upon the interpretation, application or violation of policies, agreements or administrative decisions affecting that secretary/clerk.

The association may file a class action grievance as soon as the grievance is signed by at least one of the offended parties on behalf of the group or class.

Grievances pertaining to Association rights may be initiated by a representative of the Association.

A secretary/clerk shall have the right to present his/her own appeal or to designate another person or representative of his/her own choosing to appear with him/her at any step in his/her appeal.

When a secretary/clerk is not represented by the Association, the Association shall have the right to be present at the Board of Education hearing and to state its views.

B. Purpose

The purpose of this procedure is to secure, at the lowest possible level, equitable solutions to the problems which may, from time to time, arise affecting the terms and conditions of employment of secretaries /clerks. Both parties agree that these proceedings will be kept as informal and confidential as may be appropriate at any level of the procedure.

Nothing herein contained shall be construed as limiting the right of any secretary/clerk having a grievance to discuss the matter informally with the appropriate member of the administration, and having the grievance adjusted without the intervention of the Association, provided the adjustment is not inconsistent with the terms of this Agreement.

C. Procedure

1. The secretary/clerk shall appeal, in writing, using grievance forms within ten (10) school days of the alleged grievance or within ten (10) school days of his/her knowledge of the alleged grievance, in sequence to the Supervisor, where applicable, Principal, and Superintendent of Schools. The secretary/clerk shall inform the Association at any step. A copy of the written grievance and responses shall be forwarded to the Association at each step of the grievance procedure.

2. The secretary’s/clerk’s request to the Board of Education for a hearing shall be submitted in writing through the designated representative(s) of the Association to the Superintendent of Schools and shall include a statement of the nature of the appeal and a detailed account of all the facts upon which the appeal is based.

3. There shall be a period of not more than ten (10) school days in each appeal sequence as outlined above. The number of days may be extended by mutual agreement.

4. Failure at any step of this procedure to communicate the decision on a grievance within the specified time limits shall permit the grievant to proceed to the next step. Failure at any step of this procedure to appeal a grievance to the next step within the specified time limits shall be deemed to be a waiver of further appeal of the decision.

5. Any and all secretary/clerk grievants shall, during and notwithstanding the pendency of any grievance, continue to observe all assignments and applicable rules and regulations of the Board until such grievance and any effect thereof shall have been duly determined.

D. When the case is heard by the Board of Education, an opportunity shall be given to present any relevant and material evidence, and a full discussion shall take place. The Board of Education shall, at said hearing or by independent investigation, seek to secure all evidence pertinent to the appeal. Copies of the said proceedings shall be distributed to the secretary/clerk and his/her representatives. The Board of Education will forward, through the Superintendent of Schools, a written response to the secretary/clerk within ten (10) school days following the hearing.

E. Should both the Board and the Association be willing, appeals to the Board, made in accordance with this procedure, may be presented to a neutral party agreeable to both parties for purposes of attempting to obtain settlement by the parties.
      Decisions or recommendations made by the neutral party shall not be binding on either the Board or the Association. The fees and expenses of this neutral party will be shared equally by the Board and the Association.
