Prior to the initial conference and upon the request of the UNION delegate or his or her designee, the principal or head administrator shall provide the UNION with access to and copies of all existing and available documents that are relevant to the allegations in the grievance, including all documents supporting the BOARD’s actions, and shall timely supplement this production if additional documents become available.

Time allowed shall be confined to investigating grievances that have been brought to the principal’s or head administrator’s attention.
