News From the Region

National Labor Relations Board Chairman Mark Gaston Pearce and Acting General Counsel Lafe Solomon have announced the appointment of Debra L. Stefanik as Officer-in-Charge of the Agency's Subregional office in Peoria, Illinois (Subregion 33).  In her new position, Ms. Stefanik will assist Rik Lineback, Director of the NLRB’s Region 25 in Indianapolis, in enforcing the National Labor Relations Act in Indiana, 48 counties in central and northern Illinois, and 8 counties in Iowa along the Mississippi River.  

As part of an ongoing effort to improve efficiencies in its regional structure, the National Labor Relations Board is considering a pilot program that would consolidate Regional Offices in St. Louis, Missouri (Region 14) and Kansas City, Kansas (Region 17). The pilot would also move the sub-regional office in Peoria, Illinois from the jurisdiction of the St. Louis office to that of the regional office in Indianapolis, Indiana (Region 25).

No offices would be closed in the plan under consideration, but staff in the consolidated region would report to a single Regional Director.

An Indianapolis concrete supplier found to have violated labor laws in the past has been ordered by a federal court to reinstate 11 employees who were replaced after they staged a week-long strike.

Under the consent agreement and injunction order sought by the NLRB and approved April 26 by Judge William T. Lawrence of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Indiana, the company must rehire the employees, withdraw letters saying they had been permanently replaced, and prominently post a copy of the order at the workplace. 

At the request of the National Labor Relations Board, a U.S. District Court Judge has ordered Irving Ready-Mix Inc. to recognize and bargain with the Teamsters union, which has represented company drivers since the 1970s. 

The temporary injunction granted by Judge Jon E. Deguilio in the Northern District of Indiana late Friday, January 28, also requires the company to restore overtime benefits and wages that had been unilaterally cut by nearly $3 per hour. The orders will remain in effect until the full NLRB administrative process in the case is complete.
