News From the Region

For the second year in a row, Regions 21 and 31 will join the Mexican Consulate's efforts to inform migrant workers of their employee rights in the United States. In a week long effort, both Regions will participate in the signing of a Local MOU with the Consulate, staff information tables and provide trainings for community leaders concerning employees rights under the NLRA.  

In another litigation win for Region 21, the Board in Ralph’s Grocery, 361 NLRB No. 9 (2014), ruled that the Employer violated Section 8 (a) (1) and (3) of the Act by firing an employee who refused to take a drug test without consulting a union representative first.  The Board held that the refusal was intertwined with the worker's assertion of his Weingarten rights.
