Representatives from Central Park’s Boathouse restaurant and the New York Hotel Trades Council are still negotiating in a “Hail Mary” attempt to solve a unionization dispute before a federal labor board instigates a legal complaint, the Wall Street Journal reported.
“Any decision by the [National Labor Relations Board] has been put off until at least next Wednesday while we continue to negotiate,” a spokesperson for the Boathouse said in a statement.
The meeting with NLRB was requested by the Boathouse after management heard of the labor board’s inclination to progress with a complaint, the Journal said. NLRB’s complaint will allege that the restaurant illegally threatened workers and punished more than 15 of them for supporting the union, an NLRB spokesperson said. [WSJ]
