    Steward's Corner: Writing a Grievance - by Robert Wechsler, Education Director TWU
    These are some basic tips on grievance writing. Most of this advice applies to all grievance writing but it is important to check with your local and its grievance committee to see if local policy requires some deviation from these suggestions.

    One of the most difficult jobs of any grievance representative is writing a grievance. Many of our contracts provide for the steward or representative to write the grievance on behalf of the member. By having the steward write the grievance, the union is better able to track the issue and control the grievance procedure. The member is better represented and the process is used to build solidarity in the local union.
