Story Title: 
School bus transportation services

In September 2011, employees at First Student, Inc, a company that provided local school bus transportation services, chose the United Food and Commercial Workers Union, Local 1459 (Union) to be their exclusive collective bargaining representative. The Union is to hold that status until August, 2015. However, in July of 2013, M&J Bus, Inc. (the Employer) assumed First Student's public school bus transportation functions. Since the operations of the business were basically unchanged, in fact keeping most of the same employees, M&J is obligated to bargain with the Union as a successor employer.

However, as the transition occurred, the Employer refused to hire two employees specifically because of their union activities, refused to recognize and bargain with the Union, and established new rates of pay, benefits, hours of work, and other terms and conditions of employment for employees.

Following an investigation by the NLRB's office in Hartford, Connecticut, a complaint was issued on April 30, 2014.  On June 30, 2014, the Board authorized pursuit of injunctive relief in order to force the Employer to stop its unlawful conduct and return to the status quo. On September 22, 2014, the United States District Court of Connecticut directed the company to reinstate the two employees, rescind those parts of the terms and conditions of employment that it had modified, and bargain in good faith with the Union.
