1561 Bryant v. Region 5

Case No: 1561


Company representatives had counseled Bryant about his aggressive behavior in the plant on two prior occasions. When Bryant was observed engaging in aggressive and offensive behavior on May 26, 2005, the Company invoked the rule that threatening a fellow employee is a dischargeable offense and terminated Bryant’s employment. It was rational for the Union to conclude that an arbitrator would have sustained the Company’s position.

Reconsideration was requested and denied.
