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.

According to Teamsters’ attorney Ira Gottlieb, an obstacle has been removed from the continuing negotiations between the union and newspaper owner Ampersand.
