1692 Miner v. Region 4
Case No: 1692
Miner’s explanations and excuses for his absences and tardiness in the month leading up to his discharge do not address his employer’s legitimate objection to his failure to fulfill his duties as an employee. He was terminated because management could not rely on him to report to work on time and on a regular basis. His unexcused absence violated the terms of his last chance agreement so that the representative’s conclusion that an arbitrator would refuse to order Miner’s reinstatement was rational.
