Abstract

Prior work has demonstrated that management enjoys a substantive edge in many grievance cases largely as a function of its discretion to pursue or dismiss these cases as it chooses. Conversely, organized labor has far less discretion in as much as it must pursue serious grievances which may be less viable. It is argued here that grievances filed in the name of the union may provide an important exception to this principle. This field assessment of format grievances N 538 indicates robust differences in the outcomes of grievances between those filed in the name of the union and those filed in the more traditional manner. This tendency may provide some countervailing influence for the grievant to the advantages posited for management.
