News From the Region

This is the fourth complaint issued against the employer by the NLRB Hartford Regional Office involving conduct that occurred over the past two years.

A National Labor Relations Board Administrative Law Judge ordered on Wednesday that two employees of the Connecticut Humane Society be reinstated and awarded backpay because they were unlawfully discharged following an organizing campaign.

A Connecticut nursing home operator has agreed to settle a National Labor Relations Board case involving multiple allegations of unlawful suspensions, discharges and unilateral changes by offering reinstatement and backpay to all discharged and striking workers and signing a new three-year collective bargaining agreement with its employees’ union, New England Health Care Employees Union District 1199, SEIU.

Faculty members represented by the American Federation of Teachers, Massachusetts, yesterday ratified a three-year collective bargaining agreement with The Longy School of Music in Cambridge, ending a long-running labor dispute and averting a trial before an NLRB Administrative Law Judge.

A lengthy labor dispute between the Westin Providence Hotel and the union that represents its workers has been resolved by a contract agreement between the parties, averting a trial before an NLRB Administrative Law Judge.

The contract, which gradually restores wages and benefits to levels they were at before the dispute, was overwhelmingly ratified by members of UNITE-HERE Local 217 on February 15. As a result, union officials yesterday withdrew all NLRB charges.
