Pennsylvania Labor Relations Board
The Pennsylvania Convention Center has won another round against the Carpenters and Teamsters unions. The state Labor Relations Board declined to hear the unions’ complaint.
Union president Jerry Jordan, in a statement, said the cancellation lacked legal merit and he called the act “cowardly and disrespectful.”
“This is another attempt to circumvent the collective bargaining process by the mayor,” says District Council 33 president Pete Matthews. “It’s not up to the courts to resolve a collective bargaining agreement. It’s up to the mayor to sit down and work this out fairly.”
Firefighters Local 22 is asking the Pennsylvania Labor Relations Board to force the Nutter administration to turn over internal documents about last April’s fatal fire in Kensington.
