SANTA BARBARA, Calif. (AP) -- A federal board has ruled the Santa Barbara News-Press committed unfair labor practices during a union-organizing campaign and it ordered the newspaper's publisher to reinstate eight fired journalists.

The National Labor Relations Board's unanimous ruling Thursday largely upheld a 2007 decision by an administrative law judge that Ampersand Publishing LLC had appealed.

Ira Gottlieb, a lawyer for the International Brotherhood of Teamsters division that was working with the reporters on the union drive, praised the board's ruling.

"It was quite a long time in coming, but we're pleased with the outcome and we would urge the News-Press to comply with the law and adhere to the board's decision," Gottlieb said.

National Labor Relations Board,

Gee, a "board" of political cronies who rule by fiat and carry the water of whichever executive happens to occupy the Whitehut.

We need that. It came about during wannabe-commie Roosevelt, so it must be good.

They simply found out the lady was too conservative and decided to punish her.

Newspapers are laying people off by the hundreds and the NRLB wants to reinstate “jourolisters” who attacked their owner in her own newspaper.

The NLRB has got to be the worst thing government has ever done, except for maybe the EPA.
