On January 31, 2013, the NLRB’s Chicago Regional Office issued a Complaint against Lintrac, a corporation engaged in the maintenance and repair of tractor trailer chassis and box cars in Northlake, Ill.  The complaint alleged that Lintrac unlawfully fired its employees. Throughout the entire investigation of the charge and even after the Complaint issued, the Employer refused to acknowledge and respond to the allegations.

The Board invites the filing of briefs in order to afford the parties and interested amici the opportunity to address issues raised in Northwestern (Case 13-RC-121359). 

On April 24, 2014, the Board granted Northwestern University’s request for review of the Regional Director’s decision finding the University’s grant-in-aid scholarship football players are employees under the NLRA and directing an election to take place.  The election was held on April 25, 2014, but the ballots have not been counted.
