Summarized Board Decisions
Xcel Protective Services, Inc. (19-CA-232786, et al.; 371 NLRB No. 134) Seattle, WA, September 8, 2022.
The Board adopted the Administrative Law Judge’s conclusion that the Employer violated Section 8(a)(1) by discharging an employee in retaliation for his protected concerted activity of presenting safety concerns about the Employer’s equipment-certification practices to the Employer’s client. Dissenting, Member Ring would have found the employee’s actions unprotected because the employee did not adequately apprise the client of the existence of a labor dispute involving terms and conditions of employment. The Board also adopted the judge’s dismissal of the allegation that the Employer violated Section 8(a)(1) by constructively discharging another employee in retaliation for his involvement in the same protected concerted activity.
Charges filed by International Union, Security, Police, and Fire Professionals of America, Local 5. Administrative Law Judge John T. Giannopoulos issued his decision on December 7, 2020. Chairman McFerran and Members Ring and Wilcox participated.
