News From the Region

A U.S. District Court Judge in Connecticut has ordered the Stamford Plaza Hotel and Conference Center to reinstate 28 employees who were laid off, then rehired by a subcontractor to perform the same work, after they expressed support for a union. 

The layoffs occurred just weeks after the United Food & Commercial Workers Union, Local 371, began gathering signatures for a unionization effort in June 2011. The two hotel operations that were subcontracted, housekeeping and maintenance, had demonstrated the strongest level of union support.

A Connecticut nursing home chain engaged in a pattern of bad faith bargaining and unlawfully locked out the unionized employees at one of its homes, the NLRB alleged in a complaint issued today.

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.
