UPDATE: August 5, 2008
Court Set to Hear Interbake Case
The National Labor Relations Board, Region 5, has scheduled a trial before an U.S. Administrative Law Judge for October 27, 2008. The hearing will be held in Winchester, Va. At this hearing, both the BCTGM, as well as Weston's will have the right to appear and present testimony on all the charges against the Company. The Administrative Law Judge will rule whether the Company is guilty of some or all of the charges against it.
Company Has Option to Settle; Count All Cast Ballots
The National Labor Relations Board has given Interbake/Weston's the opportunity to settle the charges, rather than go through a trial before a Federal Judge. Any settlement would have to meet the NLRB's required remedy, which in this case would be the reinstatement of terminated employees, and the counting of the challenged ballots.
