Charges of unfair labor practices by a union representing federal subcontract workers in Vermont.
United Electrical Workers represents more than 350 employees at U.S. Customs and Immigration Services in St. Albans and Essex. The union filed 13 separate unfair labor practice charges against FCi Federal, a government subcontractor that provides clerical services. The union accuses FCi of bargaining in bad faith, failing to provide the union with relevant information and changing working conditions. The National Labor Relations Board will decide if the charges have merit.
