News From the Region

Richard F. Griffin, Jr., General Counsel of the National Labor Relations Board, today announced the appointment of Nathan M. Seidman as the Assistant to the Regional Director of the NLRB’s Regional Office in Los Angeles, CA (Region 21).  In his new position, Mr. Seidman will assist Regional Director Olivia Garcia in the administration and enforcement of the National Labor Relations Act in the southern California area.

Region 21 hosted Phillipines  LA Consul General Leo M. Herrera-Lim on October 22, 2014. The Consul General viewed the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding between the National Labor Relations Board and the Phillipines.  The Memorandum of Understanding will memorialize our Agency's commitment to work with the Consulate to provide outreach to Filipino communities across the country. Region 21 and 31 Regional Directors Olivia Garcia and Rubin Mori welcomed Consul General Herrera-Lim and gave brief presentations concerning the important work of the Agency.

For the second year in a row, Regions 21 and 31 will join the Mexican Consulate's efforts to inform migrant workers of their employee rights in the United States. In a week long effort, both Regions will participate in the signing of a Local MOU with the Consulate, staff information tables and provide trainings for community leaders concerning employees rights under the NLRA.  

In another litigation win for Region 21, the Board in Ralph’s Grocery, 361 NLRB No. 9 (2014), ruled that the Employer violated Section 8 (a) (1) and (3) of the Act by firing an employee who refused to take a drug test without consulting a union representative first.  The Board held that the refusal was intertwined with the worker's assertion of his Weingarten rights.
