The Camas Education Association Executive-Level Certificated Grievance/Evaluation/Disciplinary Committee meets in confidence to discuss all member requests.  Your CEA understands our duty of fair representation, and values full and thorough examination of all member interests. CEA Members have an unfettered right to the Grievance Procedure provided in the Collective Bargaining Agreement at the internal steps of the grievance process.  The Committee may elect, via a majority vote, to not advance a grievance.  Members always retain the right to solely advance matters through the grievance process through the internal steps.  CEA retains its right, as the bargaining agent, to full involvement in the processing of any grievance, through any/all steps of the process.  The Committee will fully deliberate if a grievance has merit to advance to arbitration, in consultation with WEA-Riverside UniServ and WEA Arbitration Specialists, and will decide by majority vote.  Impacted members will be asked to submit necessary documents in advance of this deliberation and make a presentation to the Committee in advance of the vote. The decision of the Committee is final.
