News From the Region

Baked-goods manufacturer Sterling Foods, LLC, has agreed to pay more than $58,000 in back pay and interest to six employees who were discharged in the fall of 2011 following a union organizing campaign.  Three of the employees have also accepted offers of reinstatement to their previous jobs. 

The United Food and Commercial Workers Local Union No. 455 filed charges alleging the employer engaged in multiple unfair labor practices during and after the union’s attempt to organize about 500 employees at the San Antonio, Texas facility. An election petition was not filed.

In a settlement with the National Labor Relations Board, a Texas scaffolding company has agreed to pay $323,116 in backpay, per diem and interest to 73 former employees who were discharged in violation of federal labor law.

The agreement, signed February 3, also requires Atlantic Scaffolding Company to expunge its records of the discharges and send written notification of the action to the employees.

Employees at a window and door manufacturing plant in Dallas have voted 388 to 189 to reject continued union representation in an NLRB-supervised secret ballot election.

The National Labor Relations Board has found that a Texas scaffolding contractor unlawfully discharged 77 employees in retaliation for their participation in a peaceful work stoppage. 

In 2008, Atlantic Scaffolding Company contracted with ExxonMobil Oil Refining and Supply Corporation to provide scaffolding work during a “turnaround” at an oil refinery in Beaumont, Texas.  During a turnaround, processing units are shut down to undergo inspection and maintenance. 

Employees at a Texas company that installs and repairs fire sprinkler systems rejected union representation in an election that was rerun pursuant to a settlement with the National Labor Relations Board.

Results of the late-February election at Waco-based Fire & Access Control Systems.com, doing business as Jerry Dickerson Automatic Fire Protection, were  9-to-2 against joining the Road Sprinkler Fitters Local Union No. 669, U.A., AFL-CIO, with six challenged ballots. Results were certified by the NLRB regional office last week.
