Summarized Board Decisions
LakeWood Health Center d/b/a Chi LakeWood Health (18-RC-177139; 365 NLRB No. 10) Baudette, MN, December 28, 2016.
The Board denied the Employer’s Request for Review of the Regional Director’s Decision and Direction of Election among professional and nonprofessional technical employees at the Employer’s acute care hospital (the Union won the election and was certified). The Board majority (Chairman Pearce and Member McFerran) affirmed the Regional Director’s determination that a group of registered nurses, acting as patient care coordinators, are not supervisors under Section 2(11) of the Act with the authority to assign, responsibly direct, discipline, recommend hiring, or evaluate and reward other registered nurses, licensed practical nurses, and certified nursing assistants. Member Miscimarra dissented, finding that substantial questions exist regarding whether the patient care coordinators possess the authority to assign and responsibly direct other employees.
