News From the Region

A plastic surgery center in Dallas has agreed to pay more than $300,000 to settle charges that it unlawfully fired two employees and then sued one of them in state court after she sought help from the NLRB's Fort Worth office.

The center, Advanced Facial Plastic Surgery Center, PA, also agreed to drop the state lawsuit, to rescind a rule prohibiting wage discussions by employees, and to cease paying its attorney to unlawfully and coercively represent its employees.  The National Labor Relations Board issued an order on May 29, 2013 approving the terms of the formal settlement.

The National Labor Relations Board has found that a Texas engineering firm unlawfully fired an employee for discussing salary information with co-workers, and ordered the company to offer reinstatement and to pay back wages for the time out of work.

Employees at a Coca-Cola bottling plant in Fort Worth, Texas voted against union representation Wednesday in an NLRB-supervised secret ballot election. The tally of ballots found 215 votes against and 191 in favor of union representation.

Baked-goods manufacturer Sterling Foods, LLC, has agreed to pay more than $58,000 in back pay and interest to six employees who were discharged in the fall of 2011 following a union organizing campaign.  Three of the employees have also accepted offers of reinstatement to their previous jobs. 

The United Food and Commercial Workers Local Union No. 455 filed charges alleging the employer engaged in multiple unfair labor practices during and after the union’s attempt to organize about 500 employees at the San Antonio, Texas facility. An election petition was not filed.

In a settlement with the National Labor Relations Board, a Texas scaffolding company has agreed to pay $323,116 in backpay, per diem and interest to 73 former employees who were discharged in violation of federal labor law.

The agreement, signed February 3, also requires Atlantic Scaffolding Company to expunge its records of the discharges and send written notification of the action to the employees.
