News From the Region

A National Labor Relations Board Administrative Law Judge has found that a Louisiana salt mining operation committed numerous unfair labor practices in dealing with its union employees, including making unlawful threats of termination, persistently refusing to bargain in good faith, and unlawfully implementing new working conditions without bargaining.

A federal judge this week ordered Ozburn-Hessey Logistics, LLC, (OHL) to reinstate three warehouse workers who were fired during a union organizing campaign, and to stop other behavior that interfered with their employees’ rights, pending the final resolution of a case before the National Labor Relations Board.

Judge Samuel H. Mays, Jr. of the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Tennessee issued the temporary injunction on April 5 at the request of the NLRB, stating that “it is necessary to return the parties to the status quo to protect the NLRB’s remedial powers.”
