The National Labor Relations Board has found that the Hotel Bel-Air violated federal labor law by offering severance packages in exchange for a waiver of recall rights to laid-off employeeswithout bargaining to impasse with the union representing its workers. The hotel, on the west side of Los Angeles, laid off about 250 union workers when it temporarily closed in 2009 for renovations.

Because of continuing violations of federal labor law, the NLRB has issued a broad cease-and-desist order against the publisher of the Santa Barbara News-Press and ordered it to bargain in good faith with the union representing its employees. The Board also extended the union’s certification period by one year and ordered Ampersand Publishing, LLC, to reimburse the union for past bargaining expenses.
