The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) issued an unfair labor practices complaint against the Grand Hyatt Union Square and Hyatt Regency Embarcadero in San Francisco for implementing E-Verify without negotiating with the union that represents the hotels' employees. The NLRB is alleging that implementing E-Verify is a mandatory subject of bargaining. Last April, both hotels implemented E-Verify, the federal government's electronic employment eligibility verification program, without notifying the local union, UNITE HERE, or giving the union an opportunity to collectively bargain about the program enrollment. The NLRB's complaint alleges that E-Verify relates to wages, hours, and other terms and conditions of employment and is a mandatory subject of bargaining. The NLRB is alleging that by refusing to bargain in good faith over the use of E-Verify, the hotels have violated Sections 8(a)(1) and (5) of the National Labor Relations Act. The NLRB ultimately wants the hotels to terminate its enrollment with the E-Verify program, and make the hotels reinstate and make whole for lost wages and benefits any employees who were terminated while contesting a tentative nonconfirmation or who were not given an opportunity to contest such a finding. An NLRB administrative law judge will conduct a hearing on October 31, 2012 regarding the charges in the complaint.
