800.02000 – Grievance Handling/Contract Administration
No violation of the duty of fair representation where association denied charging party's request to take grievance to a Board of Review (arbitration). Association's inquiry into the legal basis for grievance is not evidence that grievance was handled in a perfunctory manner or that the association acted with bad faith, discriminatory motive, or arbitrarily. RA dismissal upheld.
