1738 Bennett v. UAW-GM Department

Case No: 1738


Bennett had already received the benefit of three last change agreements when his incarceration prevented him from returning to work at the expiration of his leave of absence. At that point, there was no contractual basis for the union to demand that the company give Bennett yet another chance. In light of this record, the UAW-GM Department concluded that no further relief was available to Bennett through the grievance procedure. The decision to withdraw Bennett’s grievance based on this conclusion was rational.
