1703 Howard v. Local Union 699

Case No: 1703


The local union acted promptly in response to Howard’s termination by filing a grievance to protect her rights under the collective bargaining agreement. In response to Howard’s appeal to the membership, the shop committee conducted a second review of Howard’s time cards and the points assessed for tardiness. Once the shop committee determined that the agreement had been properly applied, its decision to withdraw the grievance was rational.
