News From the Region

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.

The National Labor Relations Board today issued a complaint alleging that 24 Hour Fitness USA, Inc. violated federal labor law by insisting that all employment-related disputes be resolved by individual arbitration.

A federal magistrate in Honolulu has recommended that the Pacific Beach Hotel of Waikiki be ordered to pay more than a quarter million dollars to the National Labor Relations Board and to the International Longshore and Warehouse Union, Local 142, as the latest contempt sanction in a long-running dispute.
