806.02000 – Internal Union Procedures
Board will not review internal union matters unless the adverse activities of the Respondent involved in the charge have a substantial impact on the relationship between unit members and their employer. Here, allegations relate to improprieties in an election process designed to elect officials to the union's State Council, and charge essentially challenges the union's internal handling of the election procedures, including ballot distribution and notification of results. Board dismissed charge because it failed to provide facts to explain how these matters have an impact on employee-employer relations.
