Post-doctoral researchers seeking support in the resolution of a workplace grievance are encouraged to contact their designated union, UAW 5810. A key function of the UAW 5810 is to ensure the implementation (and compliance) of the union's negotiated labor contract and the obligations therein.  Per the UAW contract, "(a) written grievance must be filed with the campus labor relations office on the grievance form agreed to by the parties (Appendix E) within thirty (30) calendar days from the date on which either the grievant or her/his representative knew or could have been expected to know of the event or action which gave rise to the grievance.”  To initiate a formal complaint process through the union, click here.
