800.01000 – In General; Prima Facie Case
The Federation may refuse to pursue a grievance if it makes an honest and reasonable determination that the grievance lacks merit. Such a determination is not arbitrary. In addition, the Federation did not owe Torres a duty to represent him in non-contractual administrative matters or judicial actions. Torres thus failed to state a prima facie violation of EERA.
