800.01000 – In General; Prima Facie Case
In order to state a prima facie violation of the duty of fair representation, charging party must show that the respondent's conduct was arbitrary, discriminatory or in bad faith. A charging party must at a minimum include an assertion of sufficient facts from which it becomes apparent how or in what manner the exclusive representative's action or inaction was without a rational basis or devoid of honest judgment; p. 6, warning letter.
