On December 11, 2017, the NLRB ruled that an ALJ in Pittsburgh properly accepted a partial settlement offered by University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC) despite objections from the agency’s general counsel and the charging party.

The National Labor Relations Act has been enjoying a resurgence in attention and application in recent years.  From last year’s thirty page memorandum from the National Labor Relations Board’s Office of the General Counsel regarding “Employer Rules” reminding all employers – unionized or not – that handbooks may not contain any language that may have a chilling effect on employees’ rights under Section 7 of the National Labor Relations Act, to President Obama’s comment that Tom Brady’s “Deflategate” case was an example of why unions are still important, the expansive reach of the NLRA has been at the forefront of employment law.
