Rep. Chu Calls on Huntington Hospital to Reinstate Nurses and Allow Unionization Following NLRB Decision
On January 29th, the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) agreed with Allysha Almada and Vicki Lin, two nurses who filed a complaint against their former employer, Huntington Hospital, claiming they were fired for their efforts to unionize. The decision by the NLRB means that Huntington Memorial Hospital in Pasadena must now reach an agreement with the two nurses or the NLRB will file a formal complaint that could result in a hearing before an Administrative Law Judge.
The U.S. Supreme Court today announced their decision to hear arguments in U.S. v. Texas, the case regarding the President’s executive actions to provide temporary relief from deportation for undocumented immigrants who were brought to this country as children and parents of U.S. citizens and legal permanent residents. Those actions, an expansion of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) and Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents (DAPA), were halted by a decision of the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans.
