806.02000 – Internal Union Procedures
The Board will not interfere in the internal affairs of a union unless they have a substantial impact on the relationships of unit members to their employers so as to give rise to a duty of fair representation, or involve retaliations for protected activity. Regarding union officer positions, participation in union elections is an internal union affair. Accordingly, the Board traditionally declines to interfere in union elections unless they substantially impact the member’s relationship with his/her employer.
