Publi-Inversiones de Puerto Rico, Inc. v. NLRB, No. 17-1102 (D.C. Cir. 2018)Annotate this Case
The DC Circuit affirmed the Board's finding that PI was a successor employer and thus violated Sections 8(a)(5) and (1) of the National Labor Relations Act by refusing to recognize and bargain with the union. The court upheld the Board's presumption of majority support for the union where there was "substantial continuity" between the two enterprises, the presence within the bargaining unit of a majority of employees who had previously worked for the predecessor, and the existence of an ongoing demand for collective bargaining on the part of the union. Therefore, the Board's determination that PI met the criteria for successorship was supported by substantial evidence.
