The NLRB's New Election Rules: Explaining the New Procedures 

NLRB Region 13, Co-sponsored by Labor and Employment Relations Association (LERA)

Presenters: Peter Sung Ohr, Regional Director and Daniel Nelson, Assistant Regional Director

When: Tuesday, April 7, 2015 at 1:30 p.m.

The National Labor Relations Board racked up yet another victory against Latino Express Inc., a Chicago-area bus company whose employees voted in early 2011 to be represented by Teamsters Local 777.  The initial ULP charges were filed in early 2011 by two fired drivers and Teamsters Local 777 at the NLRB Regional Office in Chicago.  The Region investigated the charges and in March 2011 issued a consolidated complaint alleging numerous violations by Latino Express.

In Staffing Network Holdings, (13-CA-105031; 362 NLRB No. 12), The Board affirmed the Administrative Law Judge’s findings that the Respondent violated Section 8(a)(1) by twice threatening employees with termination because of their protected concerted activity and by discharging an employee for conduct that occurred during the course of her protected concerted activity.

The Employer is a temporary employment agency that provides short and long term employment assignments.  The terminated employee worked as a long term picker for the Employer.  The terminated picker and her fellow pickers observed a stocker employee being discharged.  The pickers gathered together and requested an explanation for the stocker’s termination from their supervisor.  The supervisor informed the pickers that the stocker employee was terminated because of his attitude and his inability to maintain a brisk work pace.
