Board Member Sharon Block and Regional Directors Karen Fernbach (Region 1-Manhattan) and James Paulsen (Region 29-Brooklyn) shared insights into recent Board decisions and the impact of the Noel Canning decision by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the DC Circuit, in a panel discussion at a recent Cornell University labor and employment law program.

The NLRB Office of General Counsel has found that a strike by union bus operators against a group of New York school bus companies does not violate the National Labor Relations Act because the union has a primary labor dispute with the employers.

A kosher food product wholesaler in New York has agreed to settle a long-running NLRB case by paying $186,000 to former employees who lost their jobs in the midst of a union organizing campaign.

The settlement culminates a lengthy effort by the NLRB to enforce an order that Flaum Appetizing Corp. provide backpay to 17 former employees who were unlawfully discharged following a two-day strike. Flaum contended it did not have to pay because the employees were undocumented immigrants.
