ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) – Employees at ten Jimmy John’s sandwich shops in the Twin Cities could get another chance at deciding whether to unionize.
The National Labor Relations Board said it found evidence the restaurants’ owner engaged in unfair labor practices when the employees narrowly rejected unionization last October.
The owner admits no wrongdoing, but agreed to let employees know they have a right to join a union.
Minnesota Public Radio News said the settlement brokered by the NLRB allows employees to hold another vote on unionization within the next 18 months.
