800.02000 – Grievance Handling/Contract Administration
The exclusive representative may withdraw from representation if it feels that its client is not following its advice and acting independently in a manner which undermines that representation process. This is not arbitrary, discriminatory or bad faith conduct. Correspondingly, an employee may terminate his relationship with the exclusive representative if he feels that it is not acting in his best interest.
