National Labor Relations Board Charges Novelis with Violating Labor Laws in its Response to Workers' Efforts to Organize a Union at its Oswego Facility

The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) charged Novelis with violating labor laws in its response to workers' efforts to organize a union at its Oswego, N.Y., facility. Novelis, which also has other unfair labor practice charges pending before the NLRB related to its interference in the effort to unionize its 600 hourly workers, is charged with illegally threatening job loss, plant closure, wage reductions and with providing benefits to employees in order to dissuade them from voting to join the USW. In addition, the company is accused of manipulating documents to make it appear that the union was behind a plan to rescind those benefits. Due to the particularly outrageous behavior of Novelis management, the NLRB may ultimately compel Novelis to recognize the USW as the bargaining representative of Novelis-Oswego employees without holding a new election.
