How do I file a grievance or appeal a discipline?
Timeliness is critical. If you believe your workplace rights have been violated, don’t hesitate to contact your steward first. Your steward will work with you to resolve the issue.

What’s the difference between being a union member or service fee payer?
Members have rights and benefits that service fee payers do not have.
Members have the right to vote in union elections, such as contract negotiations, electing your union leadership, and setting bylaws and dues.
Members also enjoy benefits such as eligibility for college scholarships, and a wide array of discounts and services. But the most significant benefit of membership is strength at the bargaining table during contract negotiations.
Service fee payers pay a service fee for representation, but without all the rights and benefits of membership.
