1719 Pugh v. UAW-Chrysler Department
Case No: 1719
Pugh’s posts on Instagram suggested that he was on the verge of committing some kind of violent act. The company’s decision to discharge him was reasonable in this situation. The union attempted to negotiate Pugh’s reinstatement pursuant to a last chance agreement, but these efforts were unsuccessful. It was rational for the union to conclude that an arbitrator would refuse to order Pugh’s reinstatement under these circumstances.
