Close the Gap
(CTA's 403b/457 Guide)

Without the Education Employment Relations Act (EERA), which passed in 1975 and provided for collective bargaining between school employees and their employer, there would be no right to negotiate contracts. Since 1976 school employees have had collective bargaining, which gives us a voice in determining our "Terms and Conditions of Employment". This process is enforced by the use of a grievance procedure. If unresolved at earlier levels, a grievance may result in binding arbitration. Grievance Procedure: 1. •Level 1: Informal conference with immediate supervisor. You have the right if you wish to have a representative of the Association present. Be cautious because the informal complaint starts a timeline. For example, mentioning the problem in passing may be construed as an informal complaint. 2. •Level 2: Formal conference with immediate supervisor. A grievance (complaint) is submitted in writing listing a description of grounds of complaint and specific actions of remedy. 3. •Level 3: Appeal to the Superintendent. He/She then has the option of rendering a decision or referring the appeal to the Board. If a decision is rendered, a meeting is held with the grievant, Association Reps, and Superintendent to read the grievance and find the facts. 4. •Level 4: Appeal to the Board of Trustees. Current contract language allows for the Board to take up to two months to render a decision upon receipt of the appeal. For more detailed information on grievance/complaint procedures, refer to section 6 of the Collective Bargaining Agreement dated July 1, 20117 – June 30th, 2020.
