Grievances

Contact the FSU if you need to file a grievance or if you would like to speak with an officer about a potential grievance or work related issue (grievance officers are listed below; lecturers may end up working with any of the non-tenure track faculty grievance officers listed; all members seeking help for grievance related matters are asked to first contact the FSU office). You can also contact the FSU if you become aware of broader and/or systemic policy or contract compliance issues. You can read a primer on the grievance procedure (what can be grieved? when to file a grievance? what to do about retaliation?) here

If you are facing legal issues related to your employment (i.e. a lawsuit from a student) you may be eligible for free legal services from the MTA (NOTE: this applies to dues paying members only- agency service fee members are not eligible). Click here for more information.

PLEASE NOTE: If your chair/program director/supervisor has asked you to attend an 'investigatory' interview, you have a legal right to have a union witness present (this is known as 'Weingarten Rights'). An investigatory interview can include any meeting that might have disciplinary repercussions and/or any meeting in which you are asked to defend your conduct or give evidence (for more information on Weingarten Rights click here). Contact a grievance officer or the FSU office if you would like to have a union representative present at such a meeting.
