800.03000 – Negotiations
The charge does not establish that the union’s failure to inform charging party of its bargaining decision, provide union election and grievance procedures to its members, or call a meeting of the union’s general membership, has a substantial impact on the employee-employer relationship. Charging party and other employees had the opportunity to share their views with the union regarding bargaining proposals. While the union did not agree with some of the employees’ views, no facts establish that the union’s bargaining position was arbitrary, without a rational basis or devoid of honest judgment.
