Summary of NLRB Decisions for Week of June 12 – 16
Summarized Board Decisions
United States Postal Service (07-CA-145159 and 07-CA-159684; 365 NLRB No. 92) Detroit, MI, June 12, 2017.
The Board adopted the Administrative Law Judge’s conclusions that the Respondent violated Section 8(a)(5) and (1) by unreasonably delaying furnishing information about light-duty employees’ work restrictions, unreasonably delaying furnishing information used to establish a seniority list, and refusing to furnish information regarding how it compiled another seniority list. In adopting the judge’s finding that the Respondent unreasonably delayed furnishing information about the light-duty employees’ work restrictions, the Board did not rely on the judge’s suggestion that the Respondent “waived” its right to bargain over how to protect the employees’ confidential medical information. The Board also affirmed the judge’s recommended remedial Order, including district-wide notice posting, and found that the judge did not err by declining to recommend a broad cease-and-desist order or by failing to extend the order to apply to “any other labor organization.”
Charges filed by Branch 256, National Association of Letter Carriers, AFL-CIO. Administrative Law Judge Christine E. Dibble issued her decision on December 2, 2016. Chairman Miscimarra and Members Pearce and McFerran participated.
