NLRB Maintains Union Elections


On 12/14, the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) upheld its original certification of the union election at the Santa Barbara News-Press, where employees voted to have the Teamsters union represent them. The election was in September 2006; News-Press management’s objections and related court action delayed certification until August 2007. According to Teamsters’ attorney Ira Gottlieb, an obstacle has been removed from the continuing negotiations between the union and newspaper owner Ampersand.
