800.01000 – In General; Prima Facie Case
Board will find violation of duty of fair representation only if the exclusive representative's conduct was arbitrary, discriminatory, or in bad faith; p. 3, warning letter. Because exclusive representative has duty to represent all the members of the bargaining unit, a good faith, rational and nondiscriminatory settlement agreement that benefits some unit members and not others does not violate the duty of fair representation; p. 3, dismissal letter.
