Regional Offices:

The Regional Offices are located in Washington, DC, and Denver, CO. These offices provide representation at the Step 3 level of the grievance-arbitration procedure in accordance with Article 15 of the National Agreement. As part of their duties, the representatives working in these Regional Offices review all Step 3 appeals submitted to the Regional Office, prepare detailed grievance summaries for each appealed case, and determine whether each appealed case is properly developed to allow for proper discussion. Representatives also submit timely and detailed correspondence to the appropriate Step 2 representative, outlining any discrepancies related to an appealed case and requesting specific information from the Local Union that may enhance a case prior to the official discussion. Regional representatives structure and prepare interpretive issues to Step 4 of the grievance procedure, process and/or assist in the processing of regional-level arbitrations, and provide information to Local Unions and, to the extent necessary, to the National Office about pending arbitrations and/or unresolved grievances.

Beyond trying to maintain a manageable case load, the Regional staff maintain and enhance the flow of information between the National and Local Unions within the Region, among Local Unions themselves, and between the Regional Offices.
