800.04000 – Scope of Duty; Internal Union Affairs
The union’s refusal to grant Charging Party’s request for a representative other than the one assigned by the union is not a violation. The duty of fair representation does not obligate a union to provide an employee with the representative of his or her choice. The decision assigning a representative is an internal union matter and is not subject to the duty of fair representation.
