800.00000 – UNION UNFAIR PRACTICES; DUTY OF FAIR REPRESENTATION
800.01000 – In General; Prima Facie Case

Union's dismissal of its superior court petition to confirm an arbitration award without informing the grievants is not arbitrary, discriminatory or in bad faith. Even if the union was guilty of negligence or poor judgment, that does not establish a violation of the union's duty to fairly represent its members; p. 6, warning letter.
