News From the Region

National Labor Relations Board Chairman Mark Gaston Pearce and General Counsel Richard F. Griffin, Jr. announced their selection of Charles L. Posner to serve as Regional Director of the Agency’s Region 5 office in Baltimore, Maryland, which includes a resident office in Washington, DC.  Mr. Posner will be responsible for enforcement of the nation’s primary labor law covering private sector employees in Maryland, the District of Columbia, and parts of Delaware, Virginia, West Virginia and Pennsylvania.   

The United States Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit on Tuesday enforced the National Labor Relations Board’s order finding that a Maryland janitorial supply company prematurely declared impasse in negotiations with its employees’ union and unlawfully failed to reinstate workers after they went on strike to protest that declaration.

 

An NLRB Administrative Law Judge has issued a decision finding that a Maryland manufacturer of janitorial products violated federal labor laws by breaking off negotiations with its employees’ union, and by refusing to reinstate striking workers when they offered to return.
