Columbia Basin College will operate under the following procedures involving a grievance by an individual staff member:
(1) Complaints or grievances by a faculty member shall be taken to his division chairman or supervisor.
(2) Inability to settle the difference with his immediate supervisor shall be cause for presenting it to the dean of instruction for further adjudication by the administration.
(3) Dissatisfaction at this point will permit the professional rights and responsibilities committee to become involved in the dispute. Further interaction of the grievance shall be handled through the professional rights and responsibilities committee acting on behalf of the board.
(4) Should an agreement not be reached between the professional rights and responsibilities committee and the college president, the items of disagreement shall be presented in written form as a part of the formal request to meet with the board of trustees within ten days of the date of the request, all as more specifically outlined in the negotiations agreement as provided in the statutes of the state of Washington.
