SEIU Appeals NLRB's Decision
Posted: 5/5/2014 1:24:00 PM
We have just learned that on April 28, 2014, the SEIU filed an appeal to the Regional Director’s dismissal of one of the unfair labor practice charges previously filed against the University. The appeal was filed with the National Labor Relations Board in Washington, DC. It may take a month or more before the Board responds to SEIU’s appeal. As a result of the SEIU making this appeal—the ballots will remain impounded.
The University is eager to have the voices of the adjunct faculty heard and has continued to ask the SEIU to respect the voters and allow the ballot count to occur. Regrettably, this appeal will result in further delay of the votes being counted.
The NLRB’s Notices for Dismissal on all six ULPs and the University’s position statement and response to the ULP charges is located on the www.lavernelabordialog.org web site: on the home page from the green box University Urges Vote Count, Denies Union Charges; on the home page in the chronology of Activities and Events dated March 11, 2014 (scroll down to see it), and on the Resource tab, in the NLRB documents page, under Official Filings.
