800.01000 – In General; Prima Facie Case
Allegation that employee organization representative breached its duty to fairly represent member based on representative's statement that she was pleased at no longer having to represent member did not constitute violation; pp. 10-11, proposed dec. Burden is upon charging party to show how union abused its discretion and not on union to show that it properly exercised it; p. 11, proposed dec. No obligation on union to provide employee with a representative of her choice as selection is an internal union matter not subject to DFR. Nor is failure to provide a certain representative an adverse action.
