At least for now the NLRB is continuing to do its job!

Employees at two Spanish-language radio stations in Los Angeles were intimidated, threatened and fired for seeking union representation, and efforts to negotiate a contract after winning an election were blocked by Spanish Broadcasting Systems (SBS) for over a year, violating fair labor practices, according to multiple charges filed by SAG-AFTRA before the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB).

After a review of six charges, the NLRB agreed and issued a formal complaint against SBS. As part of the remedy, the NLRB is seeking an order requiring the broadcaster reinstate the terminated employees with back pay, plus interest and any other consequential damages, such as out-of-pocket medical expenses they may have incurred after being fired for allegedly trying to unionize. It also wants SBS to reimburse the union its bargaining costs and expenses associated with the media company’s “illegal bad faith bargaining.”
