News From the Region

 The National Labor Relations Board has issued a complaint alleging that a Miami-area casino unlawfully discharged 10 key union supporters during an organizing campaign in November 2011.

The complaint also alleges that various managers and officers, including the company vice president, interrogated employees about their union sympathies, asked employees to inform on the union activities of coworkers and threatened employees with discharge. In the end, 10 employees who were members of the organizing committee were fired. No election has been held.

National Labor Relations Board Acting General Counsel Lafe Solomon announced the appointment of Pamela W. Scott as the Resident Officer of the NLRB’s Resident Office in Miami, Florida (Region 12).  In her new position, Ms. Scott will assist Acting Regional Director Margaret Diaz in the administration and enforcement of the National Labor Relations Act in Florida and southern Georgia.

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.
