1492 Ferrell v. Local Union 856

Case No: 1492


Ferrell was disciplined for failing to bring his efficiency level up to the Company’s standard. The Local Bargaining Committee withdrew a grievance protesting the discipline based on its conclusion that the Company’s standard was reasonable. It was not irrational for the Local Bargaining Committee to conclude that evidence which failed to convince the Company that the standard was unreasonable would also be unpersuasive if presented to an arbitrator.
