800.04000 – Scope of Duty; Internal Union Affairs
Allegations that Union failed to represent Charging Party before the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and in the District's internal complaint procedure fail to state a prima facie case of a breach of the duty of fair representation as the duty of fair representation is limited to contractually based remedies under the Union's exclusive control. As neither the EEOC matter nor the District's internal complaint procedure were within the Union's exclusive control, the Union owes no duty of fair representation in those matters.
