Summary of Legal Decisions: Discipline of Union Steward Upheld

Spring 1996

Arbitrator Karen J. Mawhinney upheld the City's decision to issue a written reprimand to a police officer and union steward for his conduct in processing a grievance. She stated, "The reason that discipline was warranted is because Lichtfuss crossed the line between acceptable conduct and unacceptable conduct, even in the midst of filing a grievance, by yelling at a superior officer in front of others and giving that superior officer orders." City of Oshkosh , MA-8419, February 7, 1996.
