HOH client: Union

Key issues: Demonstrate good faith on part of union, document poor employee performance.

A former union employee who was discharged for a safety-related dereliction of duty alleged that his union failed to provide him with fair representation. He sought more than $1M in damages. Holm & O’Hara LLP was able to demonstrate before both federal district and circuit courts that the former employee had a documented history of negligence, that he had received multiple warnings and that union representatives had consistently worked with him in an effort to improve his performance.
