1591 Gillert et al. v. Local Union 594

Case No: 1591


The Local 594 Shop Committee negotiated vigorously with management over a period of several years at the Pontiac location to resolve the full utilization issues. The Union did obtain a substantial monetary settlement from the Company. The Local Shop Committee’s conclusion that it had reached the end of fruitful negotiations on that subject did not lack a rational basis. The basis of appellants’ claim that they were entitled to a proportionally larger share of the settlement money is not clear from this record. In any event, the appellants were unable to convince the membership that there was anything unfair about the division of the proceeds.
