800.02000 – Grievance Handling/Contract Administration
The Association had no obligation to continue to review grievances concerning the same underlying issue, after it had previously reviewed and decided not to provide member with representation. Absent any evidence that the Association’s decisions were discriminatory, arbitrary or in bad faith, it fulfilled its obligation to explain decision for non-representation. Arbitration award reinstating employee does not necessarily imply the association acted arbitrarily, discriminatorily or in bad faith in denying representation to employee.
