PSSA Grievance Procedure
1. Try to work things out face to face. When someone does something that interferes with your appreciation of the PSSA in a way you can’t ignore, or that seems to be contrary to the rules, talk it over.
Explain the problem as you see it, and listen to the reply. (Likewise, if someone comes to you, listen carefully before you frame your answer.)
2. If you can’t communicate, ask someone you and the other party both respect to help, either by relaying messages or by moderating a meeting between you. Try not to go to an officer in charge of the area in question, as such an officer may be tempted or compelled to make a ruling instead of letting you reach an informal agreement.
3. Write to the person you’re having difficulty with. Describe the way you feel you’re being damaged, without indulging in insults or threats. Ask for the action you feel would set things right, and indicate how long you feel you can wait for a reply before making further distribution of the complaint.
Keep a copy of the letter, but do not send it to anyone but the addressee at this time. The written word is often more effective than the spoken word, so there’s a good chance that this letter, or a series of direct letters and replies, will eventually lead you to a solution. As long as you feel you’re making progress either in understanding or in getting you way, do not go on to step 4.
4. Write directly to the officer in charge of the area in question, with copies to the subject of the dispute.
Explain how you feel you’re being mistreated, and ask for specific help. Include the entire previous correspondence; if you have not already shared it with the officer–and mention the enclosures in the text. Evaluate the reply or replies before you decide to go forward.
5. Repeat step 4, moving your case up to PSSA's executive.
If no one else has managed to find a solution, the Executive Board will do so. However, there is no guarantee that you will like what they come up with, and there is nowhere else to turn. Their ruling will be final with no avenue for appeals.
Rulings could range from written suspension of membership privileges to a removal of membership with no recourse for reinstatement.
