The Board granted the General Counsel’s motion for summary judgment in this refusal-to-bargain test-of-certification case on the ground that the Respondent did not raise any issues that were not, or could not have been, litigated in the underlying representation case in which the Charging Party Union was certified as the exclusive collective-bargaining representative of the unit employees.  Accordingly, the Board found that the Respondent violated Section 8(a)(5) and (1) of the Act by failing and refusing to recognize and bargain with the Union since March 25, 2015.  Charge filed by Cannery, Warehousemen, Food Processors, Drivers and Helpers, Local Union No. 601, International Brotherhood of Teamsters.  Chairman Pearce and Members Hirozawa and McFerran participated.
