800.02000 – Grievance Handling/Contract Administration
The union investigated charging party's grievance, including interviewing other staff, and concluded the employer had not violated the contract. The union informed charging party it did not believe it would prevail on the grievance. The union declined to take charging party's grievance to arbitration, finding that the issue was already covered in another grievance it advanced to arbitration. The union was free to determine the best allocation of its resources.
