Judgment No. 910
THE COMPLAINT IS DISMISSED.
"It is not reasonable for a former employee who had been absent for five months to assume that there had been no change in policy affecting the rights of employees during the period of her absence. If the prospect of on-local status was indeed an important factor in her applying for further employment it was incumbent upon her to find out whether the same practice applied as before. Had she done so she would have been told that it did not. Since she failed to do so she may not rely on the organization's failure to inform her of the change since there was no such duty on the organization."
