LRD Booklets

Latest booklet - Disciplinary and grievance procedures - a guide for union reps

Representing members in disciplinary and grievance hearings is a fundamental part of the role of a trade union rep. This LRD booklet explains what makes a fair disciplinary or grievance procedure and the importance of clear and transparent policies that are followed consistently and fairly.

Handling a disciplinary or grievance effectively can avoid the need to take a claim to a tribunal, or can give the employee the best chances of success if legal action becomes necessary. This booklet contains plenty of case examples to illustrate how reps can avoid the potential pitfalls and secure the best possible outcome for their members.

Good conflict resolution benefits more than just the individual worker: it can raise confidence within the workplace and help to build a strong union branch.
