800.02000 – Grievance Handling/Contract Administration
Charge failed to state prima facie case of breach of duty of fair representation because it alleged no facts showing that employee organization’s participation in closure of employee’s grievances was arbitrary, discriminatory, or in bad faith. Employee organization’s failure to notify employee directly of the closure did not breach duty of fair representation because charge did not establish that employee could have pursued his grievances further without union approval.
