LEHIGH VALLEY, August 15th- The Metropolitan Regional Council of Carpenters, Southeastern Pennsylvania, State of Delaware and Eastern Shore of Maryland, filed a labor complaint against a construction company in the Lehigh Valley.

The Unfair Labor Practice (ULP) charge was filed with the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) Region Four office in Philadelphia. The Union alleges ICS, (doing-business-as), Commercial Services, in Bethlehem, violated the National Labor Relations Act (NLRAct).

Local 600 represents Carpenters Union members throughout the Lehigh Valley. Local 600 is affiliated with the Metropolitan Regional Council of Carpenters in Philadelphia.

According to the labor complaint, which was discovered by the newspaper while reviewing ULP’s and petitions filed at the NLRB Region Four office in Philadelphia, Metropolitan Council of Carpenters office is located on Spring Garden Street in Philadelphia.

“On or about July 18th, 2011, and at times continuously thereafter, it, by its officers, agents and representatives, has discriminated against and is discriminating against Felix Roman in retaliation for his membership in and activities in support of the Metropolitan Regional Council of Carpenters by discharging him from employment,” states the labor complaint, which was filed on July 28th, 2011.

The Unfair Labor Practice alleges Commercial Construction Services violated Section 8(a), subsections (1) and (3) of the National Labor Relations Act.

The complaint does not indentify the employer representative to be contacted or indicates how many employees Commercial Construction Services employs.

The ULP was filed on behalf of the Union by Philadelphia Attorney Stephen Holroyd of the lawfirm of Jennings Sigmond, Walnut Street in Philadelphia.
