The effective presentation of a grievance in arbitration often depends upon the work done earlier in the grievance process.

Through lecture, facilitated discussions, interactive exercises and mock role play, the faculty of experienced arbitrators and labor and management attorneys will provide participants with practical skills and information on how to constructively use the grievance process to resolve disputes and questions regarding contract interpretation.

The faculty will also explore how this problem-solving method can be used to:

Assess the merits of a grievance.
Conduct an investigation and communicate your position effectively at the grievance meeting.
Implement or otherwise formalize the grievance procedure in your organization.


Registration and continental breakfast begin at 8:30 am, with the program starting promptly at 9:00 am.

Who should attend?
Labor and management representatives in the private and public sectors, including supervisors, shop stewards, employee relations staff, attorneys, business agents, union representatives and personnel specialists will benefit from attending this program.
