800.05000 – Mode or Adequacy of Representation/Advocacy
A union's failure to obtain a member's approval prior to settlement of a grievance does not constitute a breach of the duty of fair representation, because that factor alone does not amount to arbitrary conduct. An allegation that the union stewards’ assistance was flawed is not persuasive as the duty of fair representation does not contemplate the complete satisfaction for all represented and the allegation does not indicate that the union stewards’ conduct was performed without good faith or honesty.
