News From the Region

National Labor Relations Board Acting General Counsel Lafe Solomon today announced the appointment of Jeffrey Henze as Deputy Regional Attorney of the NLRB’s Regional Office in Oakland, California (Region 32).  Mr. Henze had been a Supervisory Attorney in the Oakland Region prior to his appointment.  In his new position, he will assist Regional Director William Baudler in the administration and enforcement of the National Labor Relations Act in portions of northern and central California and northern Nevada. 

The National Labor Relations Board has issued an order that will lead to a re-run of an election held in the fall of 2010 among about 43,000 employees of Kaiser Permanente in California. The employees voted on whether to remain represented by their current union or to select a different union or no representation. View the order here.

A U.S. District Court judge has ordered an Oakland nursing home to offer reinstatement to 26 employees who were replaced during a week-long strike, and to stop enforcing its no-access rule in a way that discriminates against union activity, at the request of the National Labor Relations Board.
