Region 20 National Labor Relations Board Dismisses Charges Leveraged Against RID by the Pacific Media Workers Guild-CWA.

In June 2015, RID, under advice of legal counsel, denied a request from the Pacific Media Workers Guild-CWA (PMWG-CWA) to exhibit at the 2015 RID National Conference and to become organizational members of the association. The denial was based on RID’s responsibilities under Anti-Trust Regulations.

On October 5, 2015, PMWG-CWA filed an unfair labor practice charge against RID with Region 20 of the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB). This was reported to the membership in an October 29, 2015, E-News blast. . RID, through its legal counsel, responded to the complaint.

On December 22, 2015, the Regional Director for Region 20 of the National Labor Relations Board, published his decision, dismissing the charges leveraged by the PMWG-CWA against RID. A copy of that decision is linked here for review by the membership.
