LEHIGH VALLEY, August 20th- The International Brotherhood of Teamsters (IBT) Union Local 773, Hamilton Street in Allentown, which represents IBT members throughout the Lehigh Valley, filed a labor complaint against a Quakertown employer and amended a complaint filed against a Macungie located company.

In previous edition’s of the Union News, it was reported Local 773 filed several Unfair Labor Practice (ULP) charges with the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) Region Four office in Philadelphia alleging Pratt Corrugated Logistics, 7533 Industrial Parkway in Macungie, violated the National Labor Relations Act (NLRAct).

On June 8th, the agency conducted a Representation Election at the workplace of Pratt Corrugated Logistics to determine if employees of the paper products manufacturer wanted to be represented by Local 773 for the purpose of collective bargaining.

Employees of Pratt voted 4 against becoming Local 773 members to 1 for.

On August 16th, the IBT amended a ULP that alleged Pratt management unlawfully discharged several employees for their support for the union and request the agency implement a (10j) relief status. Should the agency grant the (10j) request, the IBT would be recognized by the NLRB as the employees bargaining representative.

Also, Local 773 filed a ULP on August 16th against Lifequest Nursing Center in Quakertown. The ULP alleges the nursing home operator unlawfully discharged several employees for their union activities.
