SEEKING VOLUNTARY FIELD EXAMINER INTERNS
This Regional Office participates in the NLRB’s Volunteer Field Examiners Program for undergraduate and graduate students.  The Volunteer FX interns assist in conducting unfair labor practice investigations, arranging representation elections, conducting elections and performing basic legal research. Volunteer Interns will work directly with agents and report to a supervisor who will guide them in handling case work and investigations. Interns may be briefed by senior officials from throughout the Region and Agency about the NLRB and the NLRA. Interns will be asked to produce written work products summarizing the results of investigations along with recommendations.  The Agency will work closely with participating schools to ensure class credit where permitted or desired and will provide on-the-job training as well as training on the NLRB through live and video presentations of the Agency’s Summer Intern Program and regularly scheduled Board Agent training.  Please click on the following link: Student Positions - Pathways and volunteer for more information.  

News From the Region

The National Labor Relations Board’s Office of the General Counsel has issued a consolidated complaint against Community Health Systems, Inc. (CHS), the parent company of a nationwide chain of hospitals. The consolidated complaint alleges that CHS and seven wholly-owned subsidiary hospitals comprise a single integrated employer that has violated the National Labor Relations Act by engaging in a series of unfair labor practices.

National Labor Relations Board Chairman Mark Gaston Pearce and General Counsel Richard F. Griffin, Jr. announced the appointment of Allen Binstock as Regional Director in the Cleveland Regional Office (Region 8).  Mr. Binstock  will be responsible for the enforcement of the nation’s primary labor law covering private sector employees in most of Northern Ohio. 

On January 24, 2014, the United States District Court for the Northern District of Ohio Eastern Division granted an injunction filed by Frederick J.

A federal judge has ordered the operator of an Ohio nursing home to offer reinstatement to about 20 union employees who were not retained when the facility’s management changed hands, and to recognize and bargain with the union that had represented employees at the home before the change.

U.S. District Judge James S. Gwin granted the NLRB’s petition for a temporary injunction after agreeing with the agency that there was reasonable cause to believe the operator – JAG Healthcare, Inc. - refused to hire former employees in an attempt to avoid union obligations.
