The summary of NLRB decisions for the week of Feb. 13-17 is now available.
Summarized Board Decisions
United Food and Commercial Workers Union, Local 4, affiliated with United Food and Commercial Workers Union (Safeway, Inc.) (19-CB-009660; 365 NLRB No. 32) Two Butte, MT, February 13, 2017.
The Board denied the Respondent Union’s motion for reconsideration in part and granted it in part. In the underlying decision, the Board had found that the Respondent violated Section 8(b)(1)(A) by its failure to provide sufficiently verified financial information to an employee who objected to paying dues for non-representational matters. In denying the motion in part, the Board rejected the Respondent’s arguments that the Board’s verification requirements were inconsistent with past Board decisions or otherwise inappropriate. The Board granted the motion only insofar as it requested that, in the language of the Order, the Board consistently use the term “sufficiently verified” to describe the Respondent’s obligation with respect to the financial disclosure, as the Board found that this term was more consistent with Board law.
Charge filed by an individual. Acting Chairman Miscimarra and Members Pearce and McFerran participated.
