NLRB finds merit in union charge against TruStage, continues investigation
Madison’s TruStage is currently under investigation by the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) to determine whether it violated federal labor law in negotiations for a new labor contract with its union, according to the Wisconsin State Journal. The union represents 450 employees out of the company’s 1,750 in the Madison area.
The most recent contract between the company and the union expired in February 2022. The NLRB said it has found merit in the union’s charge that TruStage unlawfully withheld information it was required to provide the union during the collective bargaining process; it is still investigating four additional allegations within the charge.
The union said negotiations on a new labor contract with the company are ongoing. The union is also organizing a march and rally on July 29 at 9 a.m. on Capitol Square.
The NLRB investigation follows a union strike for a few weeks in the spring.
