1552 Polansky v. UAW DaimlerChrysler Dept.

Case No: 1552


The Company refused to settle Polansky’s grievance because of his refusal to cooperate in its investigation of another employee. Under the circumstances, it was reasonable for the Union to delay settlement of the grievance until it could negotiate a restoration of Polansky’s seniority. There was no contractual basis for an award of back pay.
