Postal worker's fair representation claim against union rejected

In Martin v. Potter, the Fourth Circuit in a per curiam opinion for a panel of Judges Wilkinson, Michael, and Traxler rejected appellant's claims that his union did not fairly represent him in connection with the termination of his employment, where the union secured a "Last Chance Agreement" after the employee had been cited "for forty (40) unscheduled sick leave absences, for committing an unsafe act (striking a fellow employee with a forklift), and for sexual harassment," and the employee had breached that agreement.
