Issues in the Workplace

If you are facing a challenging issue in your workplace, HOPE is here to help. Whether its being a listening ear, explaining city policies, or representing you in a grievance or an ECRP hearing, a HOPE member can guide you and support you through difficult workplace situations.

City of Houston employees have 4 different routes for corrective action:

  • Grievance Process
  • Employee Concern Resolution Program (ECRP)
  • Office of Inspector General
  • Equal Employment Opportunity Commission

Each route has its own list of eligible concerns. Click on the quick links to the right to find out more.

Use the form below to request a meeting with a Departmental Union Representative. Departmental Union Representatives can represent HOPE members at ECRP and grievance hearings, guide you through city policies and educate you about your rights in the workplace.
