1649 Penley v. Local Union 23 Shop Committee

Case No: 1649


Management was clearly out of patience with Penley’s inability to control his temper in the workplace and was not willing to reinstate him. The union tried to negotiate some relief for him without success. Given the documented pattern of angry outbursts in Penley’s case, it was rational for the union to conclude that no further relief could be obtained for Penley through arbitration.
