1682 Thiel v. Region 1

Case No: 1682


The grievance procedure is not designed to compensate employees for the sort of intangible loss and distress that Thiel has described in his appeal.   After Thiel complained to the Region about his local committeeperson’s failure to file grievances over the Company’s violation of the ADA, the appropriate grievances were filed and processed in a timely manner.  Representative Elgert withdrew Thiel’s grievance once he had been reinstated to a job within his restrictions and his claims of discrimination and retaliation had been investigated.  Nothing further could have been obtained for Thiel through the grievance procedure.
