(Redirected from Conflict Resolution Proposal)
- If there is a conflict amongst any members of the NPC, staff or working groups that folks don't feel they can resolve through direct communication, it shall be brought to one of the two national coordinators. If there is a conflict amongst any members of DLOC or Detroit committees that folks don't feel they can resolve through direct communication, it shall be brought to one of the two local coordinators.
- The national or local coordinators will hear both/all sides of an issue and then work on a proposal for next steps that is restorative and fair to both sides. All parties have a working understanding of the timeline we are on and work to resolve conflicts in a swift and functional way.
- If there is a conflict with one of the two national coordinators, or two local coordinators, or if the coordinators are not able to resolve a conflict, then a grievance team can be called together to hear the conflict [including members of the C-Team at the national level, or anchors at the local level, and folks skilled in conflict resolution]. The Grievance Team will then develop a proposal that is restorative and fair to both sides, while swift and functional. The party/ies considering the grievance can request up to 4 additional members for the Grievance Team if they feel it is necessary.
- An official FYI comes to the NPC/OC once a grievance has been filed (at the discretion of the person filing it). Once conflicts are resolved it is documented on the wiki and all those parties involved agree to move forward in work.
