NLRB rules lockout of Steelworkers is illegal.
After Alleghany Technologies (ATI) locked out members of the United Steelworkers four months ago, the 2,200 employees have been out of work. Now, the National Labor Relations Board has ruled that ATI illegally locked out the workers. The NLRB also called for ATI to remedy the situation by paying the locked out employees any losses that they suffered and to go back to the bargaining table in good faith. The NLRB ruling says that ATI locked out its employees after issuing a last, best and final offer, which was an illegal ultimatum.
