What do I do if I have a question or workplace issue?

Posted February 11, 2020

Your Local Union Business Representative is your first resource for any questions relating to your Local, contract, apprenticeship agreement, Local Union & District Council Bylaws and the Constitution of the IUPAT. The first thing you should do for any workplace issue is to document to the best of your ability all facts relating to the issue/complaint.  Date, time, location, people involved, people present and all details outlining the incident/conflict. In addition, once you have memorialized the issue/conflict you should contact your job, or site Leadman, Foreman, Superintendent and then your Local Union Business Representative. Any reports given should also be documented by who & when they were given.  For further Union representation, if needed, the Regional Director in the Region your craft is located can and will be brought in to resolve issues/conflicts.
