Meredith Campbell & Stacey Schwaber Obtain Dismissal of Unfair Labor Practice Charge
October 2, 2009
Meredith Campbell, and Stacey Schwaber, of the Firm’s Employment & Labor Law Practice Group, recently obtained the dismissal of an unfair labor practice charge before the National Labor Relations Board (“NLRB”). The NLRB issued a complaint alleging that our client unilaterally eliminated paid lunch breaks for union-represented employees without first affording the union an opportunity to bargain, in violation of the National Labor Relations Act. Following trial in Michigan, and the submission of post-hearing briefs, the Administrative Law Judge (“ALJ”) found in favor of our client, dismissing the complaint in its entirety. The General Counsel appealed the decision to the NLRB, and following the submission of further briefs, on September 30, 2009, the NLRB affirmed the ALJ’s decision in favor of our client.
