In a group work setting, conflicts may arise due to differences in opinions, work styles, or conflicting goals. Wage rates can also lead to grievances if employees feel that they are not being fairly compensated for their work. Additionally, disagreements regarding the terms of employment, such as working hours, benefits, or job responsibilities, can also contribute to grievances. Therefore, all of the options mentioned - group work, wage rate, and terms of employment - can be potential reasons for the grievances that arise out of disagreement.
