-A A +A
By The Staff

 

The National Labor Relations Board has scheduled a formal hearing for January of next year after the United Food and Commercial Workers, Local 1564, filed a complaint against Smith’s Food and Drug Centers for bad faith bargaining.

According to a union press release, the NLRB issued a complaint in order to prosecute Smith’s. The union represents more than 2,000 Smith’s employees, in Los Alamos, Albuquerque, Farmington, Santa Fe and Taos.

According to the press release, the NLRB is prosecuting Smith’s for refusing to meet, refusing to accept proposals and refusing to bargain in the absence of a mediator. The NLRB complaint also includes allegations that Smith’s has violated the employees’ rights by threatening and otherwise interfering with employee Section 7 rights.

The hearing is scheduled for January but that can be avoided if the two sides can reach a settlement.

Inquiries to the Smith’s corporate office went unanswered.

The union press release stated, that despite 42 straight quarters of sales growth by Kroger’s (Smith’s parent company), New Mexico employees will not receive any holiday pay.
