BST employees, please remember the union has 60 days in which we have to meet on a grievance on the 1st step,  being an informal and requested for a 2nd step meeting being either a panel  or formal grievance if we could not come to a settlement during the 1st step with the company. Immediately after you receive a discipline or feel as though some form of violation has been conducted and you wish to file a grievance call the union. Dont wait and take the chance of being told we will take your grievance but due to the 60 day deadline the company may and tell us they are not going to meet because we have gone over the 60 days. Dial 404 688 1265 x 3332 and let us put it in writing asap.

Mobility employees please remember our time limit  45 days from the date of discipline to meet with the company on the 1st and 2nd step and to have it at the district of we have to push up due ti not being able to settle. .

We are on the clock once your discipline has been given so contact the union as soon as possible if you wish to proceed with a grievance. Again 404 688 1256 x 3332.

Remember your Weingarten Rights. You have a right to union representation and the company must honor this right.
