800.01000 – In General; Prima Facie Case
Exclusive representative's failure to fully explain terms of the settlement agreement in unfair practice case is at most mere negligence. Charging parties did not understand that under the settlement money to be paid by employer would be shared by all persons in affected class and not just persons attending meeting to ratify settlement. Mere negligence is insufficient to state prima facie case of violation of DFR. R.A. dismissal upheld. Allegation that exclusive representative settled case for too little money does not state arbitrary, bad faith or discriminatory action.
