Yes, that’s right: A union was found to have dealt unlawfully with the union that represented its employees. According to the NLRB, the Michigan State Employees Association unlawfully (1) discriminated against its own employees, represented by the Central Office Staff Association union, for engaging in union activity, (2) made unilateral changes, (3) refused to bargain over the removal of bargaining unit work, (4) refused to supply information to the employees’ union, and (5) directed an employee to keep an investigation questionnaire confidential. The Board ordered reinstatement of several employees with back pay and benefits. According to the Detroit Free Press, the MSEA, through counsel, has indicated that it will appeal to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit. One wonders whether the COSA has employees too, and whether those employees have a union. And does that union have union employees? This could go on forever.
