1767 Flores v. Region 2B

Case No: 1767


The International Representative clearly explained the basis for his conclusion that further pursuit of Flores’s grievance would have been futile. Flores had previously been disciplined for failing to clean up her work area and causing the line to shut down by leaving her post. Less than one month after having been reinstated on a last chance agreement, Flores engaged in the exact same behavior in violation of the requirements clearly established by her reinstatement agreement. The International Union made several efforts to persuade management to reinstate Flores, but when the company refused, there was no contractual basis for the union to insist on any remedy for her.
