800.01000 – In General; Prima Facie Case
Union did not breach duty of fair representation when it pursued grievance to the point of arbitration and sent certified letter to inform grievant of Union's decision not to proceed with arbitration and of procedure to appeal that decision even though charging party did not receive the letter; p. 3, warning letter. Despite allegations of several disagreements between Union and grievant, charge fails to allege facts demonstrating that Union actions were arbitrary, discriminatory, or in bad faith; pp. 3-4, warning letter.
