The NLRB has ruled that the George Washington University Hospital violated labor laws by revoking its recognition of the union representing hospital workers. When the labor union filed a complaint with the NLRB regarding hospital management’s failure to increase pay, the hospital tried to convince union members to leave the union by offering additional monetary benefits. Ultimately, management changed bargaining terms and then refused to bargain with the union. The NLRB discovered that the hospital unlawfully withdrew union recognition after two years of bargaining in bad faith. Moving forward, the GW Hospital plans to appeal the decision, and denies all of the union’s allegations.
