ASARCO LLC Key Developments
National Labor Relations Board to Prosecute Asarco LLC for Unfair Labor Practices
Nov 4 15
The United Steelworkers said that Region 28 of the National Labor Relations Board has issued a Consolidated Complaint against Asarco, LLC, alleging that the company has committed multiple unfair labor practices, including failing and refusing to negotiate with the unions which represent workers at the Grupo Mexico subsidiary's five U.S. facilities. More than 2,000 hourly production and maintenance employees represented by eight international unions have continued to work at Asarco's copper mines and processing facilities under the terms and conditions of a labor agreement that originally expired in June 2013 but was extended until the parties terminated it in June 2015. Since then, as the NLRB spells out in its complaint, Asarco management unilaterally changed working conditions at the facilities on multiple occasions without first negotiating over the changes with union representatives as required by law. In some cases, the NLRB notes, Asarco management did not even notify the unions before changing the terms and conditions of employment. The NLRB has scheduled a hearing on Jan. 12, 2016, when an administrative law judge will review evidence against Asarco and listen to testimony in the case.
