If you have a building concern that you would like to bring to the attention of the Executive Board, you may either contact your building rep or use the form to the right.
When using the form to submit a building concern, please be as specific as possible as to the nature of the concern. Your message will be sent directly to the Executive Board.
Remember: ASREA, Inc. cannot work towards solutions for building concerns if staff members remain quiet about them. This is your association. We are here for you.
You may use this form to reach us with any building concerns you may have, but there is sometimes a delay. For a quicker response, email us directly at email@example.com.
Filing a Grievance
Guidelines for Filing a Grievance
If you feel that your supervisor or employer has in some way violated your rights as an ASRSD employee by specifically failing to adhere to the terms of the current negotiated contract, you may be able to file a grievance against them. The grievance process and guidelines can be found in Article IV of the 2022-2025 contract.
It is important to note that no member who is not a building representative or a member of the Executive Board has the right to speak on behalf of another member or teaching team. Please do not bring concerns to an Association official or administrator on behalf of another member or teaching team. General building concerns should also be brought up at Association building meetings, sent via email to firstname.lastname@example.org, or submitted via the form on the ASREA, Inc. website. However, even in these cases, no member has the right to bring concerns on behalf of another member, non-member, or teaching team. This has led to confusion and unnecessary work for our Association officials. The following outline details the grievance process. Please be aware that there are time constraints for both parties at each step (Article IV, Section 6).
STEP 1: Read the Contract
Before any other steps can be taken it is very important that you read the current contract thoroughly. We suggest that you highlight, underline, circle, or mark with a post-it note the exact passage of the contract you feel is not being adhered to or violated. An easy way to navigate the contract is through the electronic copy found on the district's website or the ASREA, Inc. website.
STEP 2: Contact Your Supervisor/Employer
In a respectful way, reach out to your supervisor and express your concerns about a possible contract violation. Be sure to include the issue and the passage of the contract that outlines the rules regarding the policy in question. PLEASE USE YOUR WORK EMAIL AND KEEP A WRITTEN RECORD OF ALL COMMUNICATIONS. Keep in mind that non-district wide administrators are seldom aware of what is written in the contract as they are never a part of negotiations and, unless they request a copy of the contract, do not receive one automatically. During this process your supervisor/employer may present a solution to the violation in question. If this is the case and the solution presented does not violate the contract then you can go no further with the grievance process and the issue is considered resolved.
STEP 3: Contact Your Building Representative(s)
After you have reviewed the contract, made your supervisor/employer aware of the violation, contacted your supervisor/employer, received a reply, and are still unable to find a solution to the issue, then you may contact your building’s Association representative(s). The building representative(s) will notify members of the Executive Board and the Association will then take further actions on your behalf.
