In too deep
You work in an area for multiple years in a hub that was forced to recognize preferred jobs. You file a lot of grievances on many supervisors for working on a daily basis. This goes on for months and you make a lot of money. Finally, management has an epiphany and decides to remove you from the area as a cost savings measure, understanding no one else in this area has the fortitude to file grievances, they continue to work en masse without repercussion. You remain in your classification on most occasions but you were one out of fifty+ plucked from the situation and relocated. The reason for the move was clearer than crystal to the lords of the state. How does this interlace with article 37 and modification of work assignment post-filing and a determination of retaliation? Other incidents occurred prior to the move in which multiple article 37 grievances had been filed. As a steward, what stance would you take when defending this employee? WWYD? I do not like the message this sends - you file, you will be relocated and we will continue to work. Precisely why 1 out of 50 people file grievances.
