Washington Post Hit With NLRB Complaint; Mailers’ Chapel Chair Suspended
Posted On: Mar 02, 2012

The National Labor Relations Board has issued a complaint against The Washington Post and scheduled a hearing for May 2, 2012, alleging that the Post violated the National Labor Relations Act when it suspended Mailer Chapel Chair James Forsythe for his conduct during a company-union meeting. The Post has until March 13th to respond to the complaint.

The union charged that Forsythe was illegally disciplined for union activity after he complained that the Post was not adhering to hiring practices for mailroom personnel. The union also alleges that the Post has been discriminating against union members and discouraging mailroom workers from joining and supporting the union. After an investigation, the Regional Director ordered issuance of the complaint.

Post mailers are represented by Local 14201 (M-29) of CWA’s Printing, Publishing and Media Workers Sector.
