Sample of a grievance letter:

Dear {{Name}}, 
This letter is to serve as official notice that Laborers Local 483 is pursuing this matter as a grievance and seeks to have the made whole, including but not limited too an immediate return to work with no further discipline, rescinding the suspension and clearing his file, and making him whole for scheduled hours missed while on suspension..
I am writing to make a formal complaint against {{name of lawyer}}. My complaint is that they failed to provide me with a satisfactory service when …
describe what the lawyer had been hired to do for you {{for example dealing with the sale or purchase of a house}}
say when this was {{give the date or dates when the problem occurred}}.
My complaint is that {{list what you think went wrong or wasn’t done properly. Be as clear as you can. It can help to make it short and to the point}}…
This situation has caused me {{describe the impact this issue has had on you, your family or others who have been affected by the problem}}…
In my view, you should …. {{describe what you think the lawyer should do to put things right. 
Apologize? Return documents they’ve been holding on to? Do more work to put things right? 
Pay you some money to compensate you for something you have lost or had to pay for as a result of their poor service?}}.
I understand that you are required to respond formally to my complaint. I shall follow up this letter if I do not hear back from you by {{give a date in about seven days’ time}}. 
In the meantime, if you need any further information from me, please {{telephone me on the above number/ write to me at the address shown}}.
I have been trying to catch up with you, chasing you around. But I didn’t get the opportunity to speak to you. I find myself a very hard-working person. 
Not just my own work, I have always tried to be very supportive of my colleagues as well. I am the one who always volunteers to cover for people absent from work.
As you know, {{Name of the employee}} has left and we did not find a suitable replacement for him yet. This has left me with a lot of work. Even though I have been so helpful towards people, no one has vouched to help me. This overwork is making us work overtime even on weekends as well. 
This does not mean that I am running away from work. 
But a little help would be great now. With thanks,
I look forward to hearing from you in the very near future.
Yours sincerely,
