Welcome to Region 20 of the National Labor Relations Board.

If you have questions, or wish to file a charge or petition for election, please visit one of our offices or call and ask for the Information Officer on duty. We can arrange to have someone speak with you in the language of your choice. We are also happy to provide speakers and materials to promote a greater understanding of the National Labor Relations Act.

News From the Region

An NLRB Administrative Law Judge has issued a decision finding that 24 Hour Fitness USA, Inc. maintained and enforced an unlawful arbitration policy that required employees to give up their federally protected rights to take concerted action.

Regions 20 and 32 of the NLRB are happy to announce the release of the summer/fall 2012 newsletter "The Bridge". In this edition: teamwork leads to ALJ finding that Castlewood Country Club engaged in illegal lockout; nursing home is ordered to recognize union; Ninth Circuit enforces Board order that Hawaii hotel engaged in multiple unfair labor practices; ALJ finds unlawful subcontracting by grocery chain; and more.

The National Labor Relations Board this week adopted the recommendations of an Administrative Law Judge and ordered owners of the Yuba Skilled Nursing Center in Yuba City to hire 50 employees they unlawfully failed to hire after assuming operations of the center in September 2011.

The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals on Thursday granted the National Labor Relations Board’s petition for enforcement of a 2011 decision against owners of a luxury Waikiki hotel, and affirmed an injunctive order against the hotel by a federal district court, also issued in 2011.

Whether an employee who honors another union’s picket line is protected by the National Labor Relations Act can be a complicated issue. While under the Act employees have the protected right to engage in strikes, including sympathy strikes, there are potential factors that may deprive them of that protection. These factors may include a no-strike clause in a collective-bargaining agreement, which in certain circumstances may prohibit employees covered by that agreement from engaging in strikes, including sympathy strikes.
