A member of SEIU District 1199 recently won resolution of a grievance which related to a uniform purchase. After being informed that the member needed to purchase a new uniform, the worker sought approval of a sample from management. After receiving approval, the member then purchased the sample in several variations.
When returning to work with the new uniform, a different staff member flagged the uniform as being not acceptable. Workers with non-Union workplaces often have no established process to seek fairness. However, as a Union member, the worker joined with the Member Resource Center to file a grievance. The grievance had a successful outcome and the member was reimbursed for the expense.
Representatives with the Member Resource Center are standing by to assist members. “Your Member Resource Center Has Your Back!”
