The Board denied without prejudice the General Counsel’s Motion to Modify the Board’s Supplemental Decision and Order reported at 371 NLRB No. 20 (2021), which granted the Acting General Counsel’s Motion for Default Judgment based on the Respondents’ failure to file an answer to the compliance specification. The General Counsel requested that the Board modify that order to include language that indicates that the Respondents have an ongoing liability to the International Union of Painters and Allied Trades Industry Pension Fund (the Fund) on behalf of two discriminatees. The Board explained that the compliance specification did not specify with sufficient clarity an ongoing liability for the Respondents to the Fund on behalf of the two discriminatees.
