Resolution on Resolving Inconsistencies between the Administrative and Professional Assembly (A&P) Constitution and the Grievance Policy and Procedure Approved by the AU Administration on March 1, 2006

November 14, 2006



Whereas, the current Grievance policy was approved by the University Administration and became effective, March 1, 2006, resulting in inconsistencies between the A&P Constitution and established policy,


Whereas, an Ad hoc Committee to the A & P Assembly was formed to review the inconsistencies in the Constitution and make recommendations to the Assembly,


Whereas, the Ad hoc Committee reported to the A & P Assembly on October 17, 2006 with recommendations and options for correcting the inconsistencies,


Whereas, the A & P Assembly requested that the Executive Committee review the Ad hoc Committee's report and recommend a solution to these inconsistencies,


Therefore, be it resolved, on recommendation of the Executive Committee, the representatives of the Administrative and Professional assembly recommend removing the current Article VI Grievance Policy from the Constitution, and replacing it with the following:


"Article VI -- Grievance Policy

The Administrative and Professional Grievance Procedures can be found in the Auburn University Personnel Policy and Procedures Manual, Section 8.6, March, 2006, or in such location as deemed appropriate by University Administration. It is understood that Administrative and Professional employees will be afforded the opportunity to review, comment, and endorse proposed changes to the Grievance Policy and Procedures prior to such changes taking effect.


And be it further resolved, this recommendation becomes effective on approval by the Administrative & Professional membership and the President of Auburn University.
