1755 Dunn v. Local Union 723

Case No: 1755


It is not our function to retry the case that was presented to the trial committee or evaluate the credibility of the testimony given during the proceedings before the committee. We have long recognized that giving information to management concerning the activities of a fellow worker which would place that worker in jeopardy of losing his or her job may well constitute conduct unbecoming a union member. It is up to the trial committee to determine whether the accused’s conduct has crossed the line into unacceptable behavior, but the charge itself is a proper issue for a trial. Dunn has not identified any violation of the UAW Constitution or the Ethical Practices Codes that would warrant overturning the verdict of the trial committee.
