should a shift officer handle an union problem
My department has the luxuary of a Chief which allows the local union at the department to dictate the overtime policy and how it is ran. Members of my shift (not all my shift) have a problem with how the overtime is ran. After several attempts by themselves to talk and fix the issue they are asking me to handle it since I am their shift officer. The majority or consensus of the rest of the local union do not have an issue with it and are content with the the policy as I am myself. I feel that since the local union handles the policy that this is a union issues and needs to be handled by the executive board of the local union and not myself. My questions is this wrong to feel or think this way?
