Dozens of construction staff working on a Microsoft Corp. data center were illegally fired for protesting, a union alleged in a US labor board complaint.

In a Monday filing with the National Labor Relations Board, the United Brotherhood of Carpenters accused the construction company, Dulles Drywall Inc., of retaliating against 47 employees who had been helping build a Microsoft facility in Virginia. The software giant wasn’t named in the complaint.
