The exclusive representative's knowing misrepresentation of a fact that has a substantial impact on the relationship of the employer and the unit members during the contract ratification process is a violation of the duty of fair representation. A breach of the duty will not be found where the exclusive representative is guilty of mere negligence or poor judgment; pp. 7-8.
