800.03000 – Negotiations
No prima facie case allegation that exclusive representative refused to propose contractual changes to eliminate wage inequity of concern to charging party. Exclusive rep's refusal was due to conclusion that wage inequity was being phased out and that negotiation about the issue presented potentially negative implications for other bargaining unit members. No allegations to indicate exclusive representative's decision was arbitrary, discriminatory or in bad faith. R.A. dismissal upheld.
