May 22, 2013 | WAR ON WORKERS | In 2010, after his Illinois printing company was bought by a private equate firm, Marcus Hedger was illegally fired for his union activities as a shop steward for the Graphic Communications Conference of Teamsters. Last September, the full National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) — two Democrats and one Republican at the time — unanimously ruled he should be rehired with back pay. What happened? Nothing, except to Marcus. The company appealed the ruling in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, and it has been able to avoid reinstating Marcus because his case is on hold over a radical challenge to NLRB board appointments.
