NLRB judge rules against Lytton Band in casino union dispute
Monday, March 18, 2013
The Lytton Band of Pomo Indians in California has engaged in unfair labor practices at its casino, a judge with the National Labor Relations Board ruled.
Unite Here Local 2850 lodged several complaints at the San Pablo Lytton Casino. Workers there have been without a contract for more than three years and the NLRB judge said the tribe refused to negotiate a bargaining agreement, made unilateral changes affecting the union and employees, kept documents from the union and coerced employees on union matters.
"Having found [the tribe] engaged in certain unfair labor practices, I shall recommend
that it be ordered to cease and desist therefrom and take certain affirmative action to effectuate
the purposes and policies of the [National Labor Relations Act]," Administrative Law Judge Jay Pollack wrote in a
March 5 decision.
The ruling resolves four open cases involving the union and the tribe -- 32-CA-086359, 32-CA-064020, 32-CA-025665 and 32-CA-025585.
