File a Grievance Page

Definition of grievance:

  • A cause of distress (such as an unsatisfactory working condition) felt to afford reason for complaint or resistance. “Her chief grievance was the sexual harassment by her boss.”
  • The formal expression of a grievance : COMPLAINT “…filed a grievance against her employer…”

A grievance is NOT

  • An ax to grind:  A private or selfish motive, a personal stake; a grievance or complaint, especially a chronic one. 
  • A bone to pick: A complaint or grievance; a point of disagreement or a difference to settle.

Disagreements are part of human nature.  Our Assembly may face conflicts of interest.  Our Assembly may face power struggles.  It is likely our Assembly will have grievances.  Understanding the differences in how to handle these obstacles will go a long ways towards keeping peace in the New Mexico De Jure Assembly and allow us to be truly productive.
