Injunction filed against janitorial supplies company

January 11, 2011
WASHINGTON — After determining that Daycon Products Company has committed a series of unfair labor practices against striking workers represented by Teamsters Local 639, the National Labor Relations Board''s (NLRB) General Counsel has taken the rare step of filing a petition before a U.S. District Court seeking injunctive relief, according to a press release.
The members of Local 639, employed at Daycon, have been on an unfair labor practice strike against the company since late April 2010, the release noted.
If the NLRB''s sought after injunctive relief petition is granted by the District Court, it will mean that Daycon must reinstate the striking workers; the company must rescind the unlawfully imposed conditions of employment and the firm must cease and desist from refusing to bargain with the union in good faith, the release stated.
According to the release, a hearing has been set for January 20, 2011, to give the Upper Marlboro, Maryland, company, which manufactures and distributes janitorial, maintenance and hardware supplies, a chance to respond the NLRB''s petition.
