News From the Region

National Labor Relations Board Chairman Mark Gaston Pearce and General Counsel Richard F. Griffin, Jr. announced the appointment of Allen Binstock as Regional Director in the Cleveland Regional Office (Region 8).  Mr. Binstock  will be responsible for the enforcement of the nation’s primary labor law covering private sector employees in most of Northern Ohio. 

On January 24, 2014, the United States District Court for the Northern District of Ohio Eastern Division granted an injunction filed by Frederick J.

A federal judge has ordered the operator of an Ohio nursing home to offer reinstatement to about 20 union employees who were not retained when the facility’s management changed hands, and to recognize and bargain with the union that had represented employees at the home before the change.

U.S. District Judge James S. Gwin granted the NLRB’s petition for a temporary injunction after agreeing with the agency that there was reasonable cause to believe the operator – JAG Healthcare, Inc. - refused to hire former employees in an attempt to avoid union obligations.
