ALLENTOWN, January 14th- Hector Morales of 8th Street in Allentown filed a complaint with the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) Region Four office in Philadelphia alleging the Pizza Hut Restraurant on Chew Street in Allentown terminated him for engaging in protected concerted activity including organizing a drivers meeting to discuss joining a union.

According to the Unfair Labor Practice (ULP) charge filed by Mr. Morale, he was terminated on November 13th, 2009 in retaliation for engaging in action protected under the National Labor Relations Act (NLRAct).

The ULP was discovered during the monthly review by the newspaper of complaints and petitions filed at the NLRB office. The newspaper is the only local media that reviews both complaints and petitions filed by labor organizations and workers.

The complaint states the Head Manager of the Chew Street Pizza Hut is Mr. Ron Knocz and is indentified as the contact person for the employer.

Under the NLRB rules, any worker can file a complaint with the agency if he/she believes their rights under the NLRAct were violated. It is not necessary for a worker to be represented by a labor organization.

The ULP states there are approximately 20 workers employed at the Pizza Hut Chew Street restraurant.

According to the NLRB, the complaint is being investigated and should it be found there is merit in Mr. Morales complaint the agency will schedule a hearing
