604.01000 – In General
Information requests pertaining to non-bargaining unit employees are not presumed relevant. An exclusive representative bears the burden of demonstrating the "probable or potential relevance" of the requested information to its representation of bargaining unit employees; p. 24. Once the employer indicated that it did not believe the information was relevant for the union's representational purposes, the union had an obligation to clarify its request and explain how the information was necessary and relevant to its duty to represent bargaining unit employees; p. 25.
