NLRB Orders CC Traffic to Make Whole & Reimburse with Interest Local 727 Members

| October 1, 2019

The National Labor Relations Board has issued a default judgement against CC Traffic and Property Management Company LLC as a result of the Company’s failure to respond to NLRB-issued complaints from 2018.

The case against CC Traffic initially stems from an unfair labor practice charge filed by Teamsters Local 727 against the Company on March 6, 2018, over CC Traffic’s refusal to recognize and bargain with the Union as the exclusive collective bargaining representative of its employees.  Local 727 later filed an additional ULP charge against CC Traffic for the Company’s refusal to provide the Union with requested information.

Region 13 of the NLRB found merit with the Union’s ULP charges and issued complaints against CC Traffic on July 18 and August 2, 2018.  The NLRB’s complaints alleged that the Company violated the National Labor Relations Act by refusing to recognize Local 727 as the collective bargaining representative of its employees, rejecting the Union’s requests to bargain, and by failing to provide the Union with the information it had requested.  Because CC Traffic failed to respond to these complaints, the NLRB has deemed the allegations to be admitted as true and judged the Company to be in default.

To remedy CC Traffic’s unlawful actions, the NLRB has ordered CC Traffic to:

  1. Recognize and, on request, bargain in good faith with Local 727;
  2. Provide the Union with the information it requested;
  3. Make whole bargaining unit members, including making retroactive contributions to the Local 727 Health and Welfare, Pension, and Legal and Educational Assistance Funds and by continuing to make these contributions until negotiations with the Union have concluded;
  4. Reimburse employees, with interest, for any expenses that resulted from the Company’s failure to make the required fund contributions; and
  5. Post notices informing employees that the NLRB has found CC Traffic has violated federal labor law and will take the above-mentioned actions.

If CC Traffic refuses or fails to comply with the NLRB’s orders, it will face enforcement action.

“This victory is yet another reminder that persistence pays off,” said John Coli Jr., Secretary-Treasurer of Local 727.  “This Union expects all employers to follow the letter of the law.  We will not hesitate to take action against any company that fails to abide by the law or terms of their CBAs.  Local 727 will always stand up and fight for our members.”

Nothing in this article should be read as the union’s waiver of any legal argument, position or grievance(s), or as a waiver of any rights, arguments, or defenses under any contract, collective bargaining agreement, or applicable law.  The union does not forfeit its right to make any and all supplemental arguments.
