1588 Hulme v. Northwest Local Union 163

Case No: 1588


The record establishes that the Local Committeeperson negotiated a settlement of all of Hulme’s outstanding grievances based on his investigation and evaluation of their merits. There is no evidence that improper motivations influenced his handling of the matter. The Committeeperson’s conclusion that he could not obtain a better result for Hulme from the Umpire did not lack a rational basis.
