When a PG&E grievance is resolved at the upper levels of the grievance procedure, it sets a precedent for future interpretations of the PG&E contract. Shop stewards can use these precedent-setting decisions to defend members’ rights when similar issues arise. Virtually all such precedent-setting documents (over 8,000 of them!) can be found in alphabetical order in IBEW1245’s online PG&E Documents Library.
However, the best way to locate the documents you need is to use the PG&E Contract Section Index below. Here’s how: Find the section(s) of the Physical or Clerical agreement that are relevant to your issue. When you click on the icon, you will be taken to a particular page in the Contract Section Index that lists all decisions and agreements pertaining to that contract section. You will find brief descriptions of each decision/agreement, along with live links to the documents themselves. This will enable you to call up, view and/or print a copy of any document that may be relevant to your grievance.
You can also make a more generalized search for contract documents by entering a search term or phrase in the Search Box. You may want to try this approach if you can’t figure out which section of the contract is relevant to your issue or concern.
