News From the Region

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.

Employees at a window and door manufacturing plant in Dallas have voted 388 to 189 to reject continued union representation in an NLRB-supervised secret ballot election.

The National Labor Relations Board has found that a Texas scaffolding contractor unlawfully discharged 77 employees in retaliation for their participation in a peaceful work stoppage. 

In 2008, Atlantic Scaffolding Company contracted with ExxonMobil Oil Refining and Supply Corporation to provide scaffolding work during a “turnaround” at an oil refinery in Beaumont, Texas.  During a turnaround, processing units are shut down to undergo inspection and maintenance. 

Employees at a Texas company that installs and repairs fire sprinkler systems rejected union representation in an election that was rerun pursuant to a settlement with the National Labor Relations Board.

Results of the late-February election at Waco-based Fire & Access Control Systems.com, doing business as Jerry Dickerson Automatic Fire Protection, were  9-to-2 against joining the Road Sprinkler Fitters Local Union No. 669, U.A., AFL-CIO, with six challenged ballots. Results were certified by the NLRB regional office last week.

The National Labor Relations Board has found that a Texas employer violated federal labor laws by refusing to hire four union job applicants who were engaged in a salting campaign at the employer’s central Texas job sites.

The employer, Cobb Mechanical Contractors, Inc., was ordered to offer immediate employment to the four applicants and make each whole for any loss of earnings and other benefits suffered as a result of the discriminatory act, which occurred in March, 2009.
