National NLRB Denies SEIU Appeal
Posted: 7/18/2014 2:01:00 PM
The National Labor Relations Board has dismissed all charges of unfair labor practices against the University.
SEIU had filed six Unfair Labor Practice (ULP) charges against the University. The regional office of the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) investigated and dismissed these charges. The SEIU then filed an appeal on one of these charges with the National Labor Relations Board in Washington, D.C., delaying the ballot count. Now that all ULP charges have been dismissed and the appeals process has been exhausted, the impounded ballots can be counted.
The University anticipates a ballot count within the next month and is committed to keeping the campus community informed in a timely a manner. We will send a notice when the count is scheduled and again when the results are available. Meanwhile, please continue to visit LaVerneLaborDialog.org for additional information.
- The Unfair Labor Practice Charges (ULPs) Filed Against the University Were Baseless: SEIU’s charges against the University had no merit and have been dismissed. Throughout this campaign, the University acted in accordance with all state and federal labor laws.
- The University is Now Advocating for A Vote Count: It is the University’s desire that ballots cast by our adjunct faculty should be counted as soon as possible and the results communicated to the adjunct faculty and all other University constituents. Our position has been and continues to be that “The voting unit has spoken. Now it is time for their voices to be heard.”
