1842 Self v. UAW Region 2B

Case No: 1842


Appellant has appealed the decision to withdraw her grievances challenging her demotion from a higher paid position.  The International Representative’s decision to withdraw the grievances was not irrational.  The Company produced documentation showing that it had provided extensive training to Appellant and identifying deficiencies in her performance.  Appellant has claimed that the Company’s assertions are false but has failed to provide any specific information which calls into question management’s assessment of her ability to perform.  The fact that the International Executive Board had previously reinstated Appellant’s grievances at Step 3 does not undermine the International Representative’s ultimate decision to withdraw them after further investigation and processing.  Appellant has not provided any facts to support her claim that her demotion was the product of discrimination or the manifestation of a hostile work environment.
