The National Labor Relations Board’s regional office in Milwaukee earlier this month said unfair labor charges filed by United Food and Commercial Workers Local 1473 against the company had merit, while it summarily dismissed 12 counterclaims by the employer. Irv Gottschalk, director of the region for the NLRB, told SN Tuesday that Piggly Wiggly could submit to a settlement within the next week or could face a formal complaint before an administrative court judge. Typically, Gottschalk said, a court would look to restoring the status quo as a remedy.

Union Seeking to Reorganize at Woodman’s

JANESVILLE, Wis. — Workers at a Woodman’s Food Market here will vote next week on whether to recover the union representation it lost earlier this year.

The attempt at reorganizing is a provision of a private settlement struck between Woodman’s and United Food and Commercial Workers Local 1473 earlier this year to decertify the union at four Woodman’s stores and dismiss various charges filed with the National Labor Relations Board.

The vote next week will decide whether workers at only the Janesville store would organize, according to Irv Gottschalk, NLRB’s regional director in Milwaukee. A majority of the votes cast among 250 workers eligible to vote will decide the matter, he said.

Hopefully they will succeed in regaining their Union.
