If an employee covered by this MOU suffers loss of compensation due to the inequitable application of rules, regulations, policies or procedures and said loss of compensation is not subject to the grievance procedure in Section 29, the employee shall attempt to resolve the matter with the immediate super­visor. If unable to resolve the matter satisfactorily, the employee or the Union may submit the complaint in writing to Employee Rela­tions with a copy to the County Manager. If the matter is not resolved by Employee Relations within thirty (30) working days from the date of receipt, the employee or the Union shall advise Employee Relations in writing that the matter has not been resolved and Employee Relations shall render a decision within fifteen (15) working days of receipt of this notification which decision shall be final. The County recognizes that other employee problems also merit prompt attention and will attempt to resolve such matters in an expeditious manner.
