News From the Region

An NLRB administrative law judge has found that parts supplier Supply Technologies LLC unlawfully required employees to sign up for a comprehensive grievance and arbitration system that would eliminate their rights under the National Labor Relations Act, and then discharged 20 employees when they refused to do so. 

A Milwaukee job training center has agreed to reinstate two employees who were fired after jointly seeking help for problems with their pay, which is protected activity under the National Labor Relations Act. 

Esperanza Unida, a non-profit center that caters to low-income residents, agreed to the settlement on the opening day of a hearing before an NLRB administrative law judge, April 27. The center will also provide backpay to the two employees amounting to more than $22,000, and will change its overly-broad confidentiality policy. There is no union involved in the workplace.

A settlement agreement approved today by the NLRB sets aside a union’s election loss at Jimmy John's, a chain of fast food restaurants in Minneapolis, and allows for a new election if the union chooses to pursue one.
