NLRB judge rules against Lytton Band in casino union dispute

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.
