1545 Frierson v. Local Union 235

Case No: 1545


Frierson complains that he was pressured to sign a reinstatement agreement after he was discharged for using drugs on Company property, but the employer was under no obligation to reinstate him if he refused. The Union had no realistic hope of successfully arbitrating Frierson’s grievance after he failed a drug screening conducted pursuant to his reinstatement agreement.
