News From the Region

On July 23, 2013, the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the United Mexican States signed a letter of agreement in Washington, D.C., designed to strengthen their collaborative efforts to provide Mexican workers, their employers, and Mexican business owners in the United States with information, guidance, and access to education regarding their rights and responsibilities under the National Labor Relations Act.

Regions 31 and 21 of the NLRB, along with the Orange County Labor and Employment Relations Association and the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service held the 31st Annual Labor and Employment Law Conference in Anaheim on July 24, 2013. Mori Rubin, Regional Director of Region 31, and Olivia Garcia, Regional Director of Region 21, participated in a panel entitled “NLRB Update.” Region 31 Supervisory Attorney Steven Wyllie served as the moderator of the panel, which also included representatives of the Union and the Employer perspectives.

Regional Director Mori Rubin participated on a panel addressing current issues at the NLRB for union and non-union workplaces at a Beverly Hills Bar Association meeting on July 30, along with representatives of the employer and union perspective.  The panel covered topics including social media, confidentiality requirements during investigations, and at-will employment.

The National Labor Relations Board has found that the Hotel Bel-Air violated federal labor law by offering severance packages in exchange for a waiver of recall rights to laid-off employeeswithout bargaining to impasse with the union representing its workers. The hotel, on the west side of Los Angeles, laid off about 250 union workers when it temporarily closed in 2009 for renovations.
