News From the Region

Regional Director Mori Rubin participated on a panel addressing current issues at the NLRB for union and non-union workplaces at a Beverly Hills Bar Association meeting on July 30, along with representatives of the employer and union perspective.  The panel covered topics including social media, confidentiality requirements during investigations, and at-will employment.

Effective March 8, 2013, Region 31 is moving. Our new address is 11500 West Olympic Blvd., Suite 600, Los Angeles, CA 90064. All phone and FAX numbers remain the same. We look forward to welcoming you to our new location in the near future.

The National Labor Relations Board has found that the Hotel Bel-Air violated federal labor law by offering severance packages in exchange for a waiver of recall rights to laid-off employeeswithout bargaining to impasse with the union representing its workers. The hotel, on the west side of Los Angeles, laid off about 250 union workers when it temporarily closed in 2009 for renovations.

Because of continuing violations of federal labor law, the NLRB has issued a broad cease-and-desist order against the publisher of the Santa Barbara News-Press and ordered it to bargain in good faith with the union representing its employees. The Board also extended the union’s certification period by one year and ordered Ampersand Publishing, LLC, to reimburse the union for past bargaining expenses.

National Labor Relations Board Acting General Counsel Lafe Solomon has selected career employee Brian Gee as Regional Attorney of the Agency’s office (Region 31) in Los Angeles, California.  Mr. Gee will assist Regional Director Mori Pam Rubin in the processing of representation and unfair labor practice cases filed under the National Labor Relations Act in portions of Los Angeles county and six other counties in southern California.
