NLRB Case Expected to Aid East Bay Organizing

From OneBigBang: A long-awaited decision by the Washington general counsel’s office of the National Labor Relations Board bolsters an organizing drive by editorial employees seeking to form a new bargaining unit at the Bay Area News Group-East Bay. In a 14-page memorandum from its national headquarters in Washington, D.C., the NLRB Division of Advice, as expected, told the NLRB’s Oakland regional office that it should reject unfair labor practice charges filed by the Northern California Media Workers Guild last fall to protest tactics of the MediaNews Group, owners of virtually every major daily newspaper in the Bay Area except the San Francisco Chronicle.
