    Default NLRB Reviews Local Teamster Petition to Expand Definition of 'Dual Employer'

    When does being employed by a contractor also mean being employed by the corporation with which it contracts? The National Labor Relations Board currently is reviewing this issue in a potential landmark case. If the board rules in favor of a Teamsters local, unions everywhere could have a powerful organizing weapon. The union had filed a petition in July 2013 to represent workers at a recycling plant in the San Francisco Bay Area city of Milpitas. A contractor, Leadpoint Business Services, controls labor activity at the plant on behalf of a waste hauling company, Browning-Ferris Industries (BFI) of California Inc. The union wants the board to classify BFI and Leadpoint as a dual employer for collective bargaining purposes. The local failed in this effort at the NLRB regional level last August - and not without reason.

    This is similar to how the Entertainment Industry works,Studios or the Money People form a Production Company to produce the Film/TV show,you sign all paperwork W-4,policy and such for employment with this Company,now when you go to finance something the payroll company,only 2-3 major ones but used to be numerous in the 90's they are your employer of record,one year got nearly a dozen w-2's its a royal pain,benefits are managed through Contract Services which is the Producers Entity and contract with IBT or the black book as its known is agreed upon with them as well,that's show business...

    Very interesting. Sounds like a big pain though.
