Grievance Officers: 2021-2023

From Article V, Section 5 of the WOUFT Constitution and Bylaws:

The Executive Council is responsible for processing any contractual complaint. The Executive Council shall appoint individuals to be Grievance Representatives, who shall represent the local as “Grievance Officers” in grievance matters with the university. Once a complaint is received, the Executive Council will refer each such complaint to one or more grievance representatives for investigation. Grievance Representatives will investigate complaints assigned to them by the WOUFT Executive Council, evaluate the validity of each complaint, and report to the Executive Council on the findings of their investigations. The Executive Council will make final decisions on the disposition of formal membership complaints.

The Grievance Review shall take place within contractual requirements for processing the grievance.

Your WOUFT Grievance Officers are:

Mark Perlman
Bryan Dutton
Melanie Landon-Hays
Scott Beaver
Chloë Hughes

In training:

Maria Peterson-Ahmad

Please do not contact these folks directly if you have a potential grievance, instead contact an Executive Council member and the Executive Council  will assign a grievance officer to your case.
