The Board (Chairman McFerran and Member Wilcox; Member Ring, concurring) affirmed the Regional Director’s decision not to reinstate the decertification petitions. The Board held that that an employer may not restart the decertification process by requesting and securing reinstatement of its employees’ decertification petition, and affirmed the Regional Director’s decision on the basis that the Employer—and not an employee or group of employees or individual or labor organization acting in their behalf—requested reinstatement of the instant petitions.
Petitioner—an individual. Chairman McFerran and Members Ring and Wilcox participated.
1621 Route 22 West Operating Company, LLC d/b/a Somerset Valley Rehabilitation & Nursing Center (22-CA-069152 and 22-CA-074665; 371 NLRB No. 101) Bound Brook, NJ, May 24, 2022.
In this compliance proceeding, the Board granted in part the Acting General Counsel’s Motion to Strike and for Partial Summary Judgment as to those paragraphs of the compliance specification for which there was either no issue in dispute or the Respondent admitted the allegation, sought to relitigate settled issues, or improperly failed to deny the allegation with the specificity required under the Board’s Rules and Regulations. The Board remanded the case for a hearing limited to taking evidence concerning paragraphs of the compliance specification as to which summary judgment was denied or was not sought.
Charges filed by 1199 SEIU United Healthcare Workers East, New Jersey Region. Administrative Law Judge Lauren Esposito issued her decision on January 15, 2013. Chairman McFerran and Members Ring and Prouty participated.
11 West 51 Realty LLC d/b/a The Jewel Facing Rockefeller Center (02-CA-256884; 371 NLRB No. 83) New York, NY, May 27, 2022.
The Board adopted the Administrative Law Judge’s conclusion that the Respondent violated Section 8(a)(5) and (1) by limiting paid annual vacation to two weeks without giving the Union notice and an opportunity to bargain. The Board reversed the judge’s conclusion that the Respondent violated Section 8(a)(5) and (1) by failing to notify and bargain with the Union over the effects of its decision to place new king-size pillows in certain of the Respondent’s guestrooms. Member Kaplan concurred in dismissing the allegation regarding the new king-sized pillows but would also find that the change did not constitute a material change to the housekeepers’ working conditions that would warrant a bargaining obligation in the first place.
Charge filed by the New York Hotel and Motel Trades Council, AFL-CIO. Administrative Law Judge Benjamin W. Green issued his decision on February 25, 2021. Chairman McFerran and Members Kaplan and Ring participated.
