Recently, I have helped an association member follow up on a grievance that was supposed to have been submitted to the U.S. As I looked into this matter, I discovered that the person that said they wrote a grievance and sent it to the U.S. never did. When it comes to serious matters like this, I recommend you write and file your own grievances this will guarantee it gets done.
I will place the instructions in this post on the grievance procedure steps. Also in this post will be a link to downloadable a grievance form. If you would like a copy of a Sample Grievance, please contact me, it will give you ideas and you can see the steps in the process. I have also located some helpful grievance checklists and worksheets from another association which we can adopt to assist and use to write a solid grievance.
