News From the Region

The NLRB has published new rules concerning the processing of representation petitions filed on or after April 14, 2015. Region 25 will be conducting two presentations highlighting the changes that have been implemented by these new rules. On Thursday, April 2, 2015, Region 25 will hold a presentation in their Regional offices located at 575 N. Pennsylvania St., Room 238, Indianapolis, Indiana 46204. Then on Wednesday, April 8, 2015, the Region will conduct another presentation in their Subregional office located at 300 Hamilton Blvd., Suite 200, Peoria, Illinois 61602.

The Board concluded that an aluminum company’s decision to bar striking employees from returning to work until they pledged not to engage in such strike activity again provided “strong evidence of animus toward the protected conduct of striking” and supported the Region’s theory that an employee was unlawfully discharged. 

After the Agency had secured a 10(j) injunctive order from the court, Region 25 approved a comprehensive non-Board settlement which resulted in a 3-year collective bargaining agreement, resolution of the unilateral changes and other ULPs, and provided for compensation to employees (including $678,000 in lump sum payments) and an increase in wages over the duration of the 3-year contract, all valued by the parties to be in excess of one million dollars.

National Labor Relations Board Chairman Mark Gaston Pearce and General Counsel Richard F. Griffin, Jr. have announced the appointment of Nathaniel E. Strickler as Officer-in-Charge of the Agency's Subregional office in Peoria, Illinois (Subregion 33). In his new position, Mr. Strickler will assist Rik Lineback, Regional Director of the NLRB’s Indianapolis, IN office (Region 25),  in enforcing the National Labor Relations Act in Indiana,  and parts of Kentucky, northern Illinois and Iowa along the Mississippi River. 

An Indianapolis concrete supplier found to have violated labor laws in the past has been ordered by a federal court to reinstate 11 employees who were replaced after they staged a week-long strike.

Under the consent agreement and injunction order sought by the NLRB and approved April 26 by Judge William T. Lawrence of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Indiana, the company must rehire the employees, withdraw letters saying they had been permanently replaced, and prominently post a copy of the order at the workplace.
