News From the Region

The United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit has enforced a National Labor Relations Board order finding that Oaktree Capital Management, L.P., an asset manager for investment funds, effectively controlled the management of Hawaii’s Turtle Bay Resort and shared responsibility for unfair labor practices committed by local managers.  

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit this week upheld a federal injunction ordering the Pacific Beach Hotel in Waikiki to recognize the union selected by its employees, bargain in good faith for a labor contract, and reinstate five union leaders who were fired.

The National Labor Relations Board, in a 3-0 decision issued on Tuesday, found that the Pacific Beach Hotel (HTH Corp.), violated the National Labor Relations Act in numerous respects--the latest episode in a 10-year effort by the Longshore Workers Union to secure a collective bargaining agreement for approximately 500 employees at the prominent Waikiki lodging.
