Update: NLRB Applies for Entry of Summary Judgement Against Buddy’s Parking for Failure to Comply with NLRB Order

| June 11, 2019

Acting Deputy Associate General Counsel David Habenstreit of the National Labor Relations Board recently filed an application for entry of summary judgement which would enforce the NLRB’s previous judgement against Buddy’s Parking to make whole the Teamsters Local 727 members formerly employed at the Company’s 2 East Oak Street location with interest.

The case arose from an unfair labor practice charge filed by Local 727 with Region 13 of the NLRB in July 2017 after Buddy’s Parking refused to bargain in good faith over the effects of the Company’s mass layoff of all bargaining unit members at the 2 East Oak Street parking location.  After investigating and finding merit with Local 727’s ULP charge, the Board issued a complaint against Buddy’s on November 16, 2017.  The NLRB entered a judgement by default against Buddy’s after the Company failed to respond to the Board and ordered Buddy’s to “pay the eight discharged bargaining unit employees formerly employed at the Respondent’s 2 East Oak Street location their normal wages, with interest.”

Despite having had more than a year to do so, Buddy’s has not complied with the Board’s judgement.  Local 727 continued to push the Board to pursue enforcement and is happy to report that, on May 24, 2019 the Acting Deputy Associate General Counsel filed an application for entry of summary judgement enforcing the previous order.

“No Company is above the law,” said John Coli Jr., Secretary-Treasurer of Local 727.  “Local 727 will not relent until our Brothers receive what they so rightfully deserve.  Enough is enough.  It’s well past time for Buddy’s to fulfill its lawful obligations.”
