800.01000 – In General; Prima Facie Case
Absent bad faith, discrimination, or arbitrary conduct, mere negligence or poor judgment in handling a grievance does not constitute a breach of the duty of fair representation by a union. Thus, the denial of a member’s request to file a grievance, without more, does not constitute a breach of the union’s duty of fair representation to the member.
