On December 31, 2012 Senior Partner John Golper, Senior Counsel Katherine Hren and Associate Craig Hoetger received a favorable decision dismissing all complaint allegations brought by the SEIU United Service Workers Union alleging numerous unfair labor practices against Windsor Redding Care Center.
The case involved a consolidated complaint of four separate cases and was tried in Redding California on August 21 – 24 2012. Administrative law Judge Greg Meyerson ruled that the employer did not violate Sections 8 (a)(1) and (3) of the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA) when it terminated two union activists for separate acts of misconduct involving patient abuse and failure to report abuse, respectively, and did not violate the NLRA Sections 8(a)(1) and(5) by allegedly failing to engage in pre-or post-discipline bargaining.
The ALJ further found that Windsor Redding did not violate NLRA Sections 8 (a)(1) and (5) by allegedly discontinuing granting of pay increases on employee anniversary dates. The published decision is Windsor Redding Care Center 2012 NLRB LEXIS 875 (2012).
