GRIEVANCE PROCEDURE It is desired that differences between employees and supervisors be resolved as quickly as possible. To achieve this goal, employees are encouraged to discuss such differences with their supervisor as soon as possible after they are aware of the event leading to the difference and prior to filing a grievance. Supervisors are similarly encouraged to be responsive to such discussions. Adjustments may not conflict with this Agreement or applicable laws, regulations, or policies and shall not be precedential. Such discussion is at the employee's option and the time limits for filing a grievance shall be adhered to. If the supervisor has not responded, or the employee is not satisfied with the supervisor's response, the employee must file a written grievance at Step One within the time frames set forth below. A grievance shall be defined as any controversy or dispute involving the application or interpretation of the terms of this Agreement arising between the CEA or an employee or employees and the Employer. Grievances shall be processed on forms provided by the Employer. The grievance shall state the facts giving rise to the grievance, the specific provision(s) of the Agreement that are alleged to have been violated, and the remedy requested. If the Employer fails to render a decision within the allotted time, the grievance may be advanced to the next step by the CEA. Time frames may be extended by mutual agreement of the parties. Step One: An employee shall individually, or with a CEA representative, present the written grievance to the Division Director of the employing division within twenty (20) working days of the disputed action or the date the employee is made aware of the action, whichever is later. The supervisor shall respond in writing within ten (10) working days of receipt. The written grievance shall state specifically which Article(s) and Section(s) the Employer may have violated and the manner in which the violation is alleged to have occurred. Settlements reached at Step One shall be binding only if such settlements are consistent with the provisions of this Agreement, the policies and regulations of the Employer, and the authority of the respondent. Grievances settled at Step One which are found to be inconsistent with the provisions of this Agreement, the policies and regulations of the Employer, and/or the authority of the respondent may be reopened by the Employer through written notice to CEA within ten (10) working days after receipt of the settlement. CEA may advance such a grievance directly to Step Two. Step Two: If the grievance is unresolved at the prior Step, an appeal may be submitted by the CEA representative in writing to the Commissioner of the Department of Administration within ten (10) working days after the prior Step response is due or received. Within five (5) working days of receipt at Step Two, the grievance shall be the subject of a conference between the CEA representative and a representative of the Commissioner of the Department of Administration. If the representatives are unable to resolve the grievance, the Commissioner or designee shall respond in writing within ten (10) working days after the conference.
