National Labor Relations Board vs. Mountaire Farms
SELBYVILLE, Del. – Mountaire farms in Selbyville is facing a lawsuit from union officials for refusing to hand over personal records of an employee.
Officials say, Mountaire employee, Oscar Cruz Sosa wants to decertify the union and wishes to have an election to vote union leaders out. However, according to Sosa’s attorney, the union has allegedly made efforts to keep the employees from voting.
Union leaders reportedly asked Mountaire for personal documents and surveillance of Sosa’s dealings, but Mountaire has refused. Now the National Right to Work is intervening to not only protect Sosa’s rights, but all rights of employees in Delaware. Glenn Taubman, a staff attorney with the NRTW legal defense foundation who is representing Cruz Sosa says, “Coupled with their desire for re-election with the fact that Delaware is not a right to work state and we have this situation where people just want out of the union.”
Sosa’s attorney also tells 47 ABC, there are multiple cases pending in the national labor relations board, and they hope to have this case handled by the summer.
