The definition of grievance is any cause of complaint arising between an employee and employer on a matter concerning discipline, alleged discrimination, promotion, assignment or interpretation or application of Institution or University System rules or departmental procedures over which Institution or University System management has control. If, however, the complaint pertains to the general level of wages, wage patterns, fringe benefits or to other broad areas of financial management and staffing, it is not a grievable issue.
