Grievance Committee
Staff Council Logo

Are you a Carnegie Mellon University staff member who is considering filing a grievance? 

Do you need help making sense of the Staff Grievance Procedure? 

Are you looking for someone who can offer you unbiased support throughout the process? 

The Staff Council Grievance Committee may be able to help. The Staff Council Grievance Committee was founded to support and accompany staff members who are investigating and participating in the grievance process at Carnegie Mellon. The list that follows indicates the services and support the committee can provide. 

  • We will offer information about the grievance process, supportive listening, non-judgemental feedback, and note-taking during proceedings to anyone anticipating or participating in the grievance process. 

  • We are one source for such services. There are many others (friends, colleagues, family). 
  • We are not advice givers, advocates, or experts. 
  • Our purpose is not to endorse either the grievant or the University, but rather to assist in a fair grievance process. 
  • A grievant has no commitment to using our Committee's service. Once we have been contacted, the grievant can disengage us at any time, for any reason. 

  • A grievant's right to privacy will be honored at all times. 
Get the Grievance Guide!**  It simply explains the grievance procedure in a clear and easy to read format.  It includes an outline and flow chart of the procedure. 

If you have questions or concerns about the procedures or would like to talk to someone further, please feel free to contact anyone on the following list: 

** The Grievance Guide is a "pdf" file and requires the free Adobe Acrobat Reader to view, available at Adobe at
