1804 Carl v. UAW Local Union 900 Bargaining Committee

Case No: 1804


The Local’s decision to withdraw Appellant’s grievance challenging his termination was rational.  It is undisputed that Appellant was unable to report for work due to his incarceration.  As several past PRB cases show, incarceration generally does not excuse the failure to report for service.  The Union can urge the Company to reemploy an individual following release from prison, as was done here, but it does not have a basis under the contract to require the Company to do so.
