University of La Verne Adjuncts’ NLRB Complaints Dismissed for Lack of Merit

by Imani Tate

A union’s failed attempt to organize University of La Verne adjunct professors has prompted increased dialogue and let university officials resume projects that had to be halted when the union began its organizing efforts on the main campus last fall.

On Aug. 1, the national office of the National Labor Relations Board formally notified ULV Chief Human Resources Officer Jody Bomba that it had dismissed for lack of merit six complaints filed by the Service Employees International Union claiming university interference with union organizing and harassment and punishment of proponents.

The national NLRB’s decision upheld the July 30, 2013, dismissal by its regional California office.

The no-merit ruling came after ULV submitted substantial written evidence and testimony countering union allegations and proving all allegations false.

The NLRB also confirmed that SEIU asked the board to halt the union vote on Feb. 7, one week before the end of the two-week voting period. The NLRB, by SEIU request, confiscated the ballots on Feb. 21. Although ULV President Devorah Lieberman appealed and wanted to have the votes counted, the confiscation requested by the union prevented the count.

The NLRB additionally reported the union had withdrawn its petition to organize
