IATSE successfully rebuffs efforts by an SEIU local

IATSE successfully rebuffed efforts by an SEIU local to obtain jurisdiction over the Ford Center for the Performing Arts in New York, New York.  The employer had voluntarily recognized the IATSE as representative of a group of ushers, ticket takers, and other employees and the parties were close to reaching a contract, after nine months of negotiations, when SEIU filed its petition.  The NLRB dismissed SEIU’s petition, concluding that a reasonable period of time for bargaining had not yet elapsed.
