News From the Region

National Labor Relations Board Acting General Counsel Lafe Solomon announced the appointment of Terry D. Combs as the Assistant to the Regional Director of the NLRB’s Regional Office in Tampa, Florida (Region 12).  In his new position, Mr. Combs will assist Acting Regional Director Margaret Diaz in the administration and enforcement of the National Labor Relations Act in Florida and southern Georgia.

An NLRB administrative law judge has found that a Puerto Rico hospital repeatedly violated federal labor laws by changing conditions of work – including the elimination of an entire department - without bargaining with the union representing its employees.

The National Labor Relations Board has ruled that a union practice of displaying a large inflatable rat balloon at a secondary employer’s premises to protest the labor practices of its non-union contractor is not coercive, and so does not violate U.S. labor law.
