Conflict Resolution through Grievance Appeals Under the State University of New York Union Contract.
Satryb, Ronald P.
This case study provides an analytical description of a grievance appeals process in higher education as it actually operates under a particular collective bargaining agreement. The scope of the study was purposely limited to provide a thorough description of one aspect of collective bargaining in higher education. Sixteen research questions were designed and answered concentrating on: number, flow, and categories of grievance appeals; establishment of management and employee rights; rationale for review decisions; personnel and technical relationships; governance issues; and management and union interviews. Results indicated that: (1) The grievance review officers, in accordance with contract provisions, considered procedural matters as the only acceptable basis for grievance. (2) Grievants and/or the union continued to appeal grievances for which precedents had already been established in previous reviews. (3) The power of the reviewing officers and arbitrators was substantially limited by the contract, the policies of the SUNY trustees, the rules and regulations of other state agencies, and by state law. (4) Both the union and/or grievants attempted in several instances to use the grievance procedures as a method of continuing the collective bargaining process. (Author/MJM)
