800.01000 – In General; Prima Facie Case
Union conduct not arbitrary, discriminatory or in bad faith where two union representatives and union president meet with and/or speak with charging party several times regarding case. Union may exercise its discretion on how far to pursue a grievance so long as it does not arbitrarily ignore a meritorious grievance. Obtaining an attorney does not automatically terminate a union’s duty to fairly represent member of unit.
