1102.01000 – Pre-Arbitration
Deferral is proper where the alleged unfair practice is arguably prohibited by the parties’ agreement. It is not sufficient for the agreement to merely cover or discuss the matter; the conduct alleged to be an unfair practice must be prohibited. Here, since contract did not contain “non-discrimination” clause, Board agent properly refused to defer charge alleging discrimination.
