1756 Granger v. Local Union 900

Case No: 1756


An audit of unemployment claims at the MAP revealed that a substantial number of union members had received unemployment benefits improperly. During the course of his employment, Granger was found to have received unemployment benefits improperly on five occasions. The local union bargaining committee negotiated a settlement that reinstated qualified bargaining unit members. Notes provided by the bargaining committee indicate that Granger’s poor work record at the MAP made him ineligible for reinstatement under the terms of the settlement agreement. The settlement agreement provided a rational basis for the union’s decision to withdraw Granger’s grievance.
