FEDERAL LABOR RELATIONS AUTHORITY OALJ 16-03
MICHIGAN ARMY NATIONAL GUARD
LABORERS’ INTERNATIONAL UNION OF NORTH AMERICA, LOCAL 2132, AFL-CIO
Case No. CH-CA-14-0475
On November 10, 2014, the Regional Director of the Chicago Region of the Federal Labor Relations Authority (FLRA/Authority), issued a Complaint and Notice of Hearing, alleging that the Michigan Army National Guard (Respondent), violated § 7116(a)(1) of the Federal Service Labor-Management Relations Statute (Statute). The Complaint alleged that the Respondent interfered with, restrained, and coerced employees in the exercise of their rights guaranteed by § 7102 of the Statute.
On November 25, 2014, the Respondent filed an answer admitting some of the facts alleged while denying that it committed an unfair labor practice (ULP) in violation of 5 U.S.C. § 7116(a)(1). On January 9, 2015, the Respondent filed a Motion for Dismissal and/or Summary Judgment contending that the FLRA lacks jurisdiction to adjudicate this case. In support thereof, the Respondent filed a brief with Enclosures 1 through 10. (Resp’t Exs. 1-10). On January 15, 2015, the General Counsel (GC) filed a Cross-Motion for Summary Judgment and a motion to indefinitely postpone the hearing. The motion to indefinitely postpone the hearing was granted on January 22, 2015, and the hearing was canceled.
