800.05000 – Mode or Adequacy of Representation/Advocacy
The mere fact that union attempted to resolve employee’s concerns through an informal process rather than through the formal grievance process does not establish a violation of the duty of fair representation. Replacement of one mediation representative with another does not establish violation of duty of fair representation, as selection of representative is an internal union activity not subject to PERB review.
