GSU staff rep Steve Torgerson and GSU legal counsel Ronni Nordal recently resolved a grievance before it went to arbitration.  Steve credits the successful resolution to thorough and open discussion and a desire to arrive at a fair resolution. 

When there are problems in the workplace, GSU staff reps help gather information and facts as they work with members to find a solution. If arbitration and legal assistance are required, those services are provided to members as part of their union dues. There is no additional charge for legal or other GSU assistance. 

Contact your GSU staff rep for assistance with questions or concerns.
Your inquiry will be treated with strict confidentiality. Contact information for our staff reps is available here
