Today we were delivered a copy of an unfair labor practice complaint, filed by the Baltimore Municipal Employees Union, Local 44, against the Baltimore Convention Center, Mayor and City Council of Baltimore. The complaint, filed June 11, charges Baltimore Convention Center management with failing to recognize the union as an "exclusive representative under the Municipal Employees Relations Ordinance," threatening and coercing union-represented employees, denying union agents access to bargaining-unit employees, denying union representatives access to work stations and break rooms in the convention center, delaying meetings and hearings, refusing to process contract or civil service grievances, and more.
City Paper Left a message today at the AFSCME office in Baltimore, but have not heard back. In the meantime, you can read the complaint below.
