News From the Region

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.
