Supervisor’s Support of Adjunct Union Did Not Taint Election, NLRB Rules

The National Labor Relations Board has upheld a unionization vote by adjunct instructors at a California college after determining that the election had not been tainted by a supervisor’s support for their organization.
The administration of Laguna College of Art and Design had asked the NLRB to invalidate the election as improperly influenced by the pro-union activities of James Galindo, a part-time instructor who also served in a supervisory role, as coordinator of an art program for freshmen. The private college’s lawyers argued that Mr. Galindo never should have been allowed to vote on unionization and that his involvement in the election, conducted last year, had had a coercive effect because he handles some hiring and other personnel decisions.
