Current Unfair Labor Practice Charges and Grievances with the Employer

A list of the the current grievances and unfair labor practice (ULP) charges filed with Michigan Medicine.

09/05/2018 - Cell Phone Stipend Grievance

Grievance Summary

This grievance seeks to address the Employer's unilateral decision not to provide Cell Phone Stipend forms to fellows when they provided other pre-employment forms. This action resulted in newly hired fellows not receiving the July 2018 stipend.

Employer Response Summary

The Employer denied this grievance because it asserts that it is within their right not to provide the necessary forms to newly hired house officers along with all their other pre-hire documentation. Denying the $50 stipend in July of 2018 was within the employer's rights.

06/11/2018 - Unfair Labor Practice (ULP) Charge

Grievance Summary

This is a multi-charged complaint filed against the Employer regarding retaliation against union members in the Family Medicine program, the union as an entity, and its bargaining agent. It also includes the employer's breach of the 2013 Settlement Agreement regarding surgery residents while assigned to academic development time.

Employer Response Summary

The employer's response to the ULP was to deny any retaliation or repudiation of the CBA and tried (unsuccessfully) to have the judge dismiss the case.  In a nutshell, the employer attests that its actions are within in the scope of the CBA and signed Settlement Agreements.  The HOA's retaliation charge is directly related to the last ULP hearing where the same judge ruled in the HOA's favor.
