News From the Region

National Labor Relations Board Acting General Counsel Lafe Solomon announced the appointment of Richard Fox as the Regional Attorney of the NLRB’s Regional Office in Newark, New Jersey (Region 22).

In his new position, Mr. Fox will assist Regional Director Michael Lightner in the administration and enforcement of the National Labor Relations Act in northern and central New Jersey. He replaces Maria E. Balzano, who retired.

A hearing set for Oct. 5 at the NLRB Regional Office in Newark will examine objections to an election that asked more than 1,000 construction workers to choose representation by one of two unions or none at all. The outcome will affect all dockbuilders, pier carpenters, shorers, house movers, pile drivers, divers, tenders, foundation workers, drillers and marine constructors employed by members of the General Contractors Association of New York.

Employees at a Bed, Bath & Beyond warehouse in Carteret, New Jersey voted against representation by United Food and Commercial Workers Local 888 in a two-day election conducted by the NLRB’s Newark Regional Office.
