In the CSU unionized environment, a grievance is a written allegation by an employee/union (grievant) that there has been a violation, misapplication and/or misinterpretation of a specific term of the employee's collective bargaining agreement. An effective grievance process is one that considers the grievance in good faith and facilitates the resolution of the grievance in a timely manner.
