FEDERAL LABOR BOARD TO SLAP LUNDY WITH CHARGES FOR VIOLATIONS OF WORKERS' RIGHTS

 WASHINGTON, May 18 /PRNewswire/ -- The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) is prepared to issue a complaint against Lundy Packing in Clinton, N.C., for 27 violations of federal law guaranteeing workers' rights to organize a union.
 According to the charges filed by the United Food and Commercial Workers Union (UFCW) Local 204 and Operating Engineers Local 465, the company threatened workers with plant closure and discharge because of the union organizing campaign, interrogated workers about union activities, indicated it would not deal with the union and illegally fired four workers for supporting union organizing activity.
 The Labor Board's regional director has found merit in all of the unions' charges and is expected to issue a formal complaint against Lundy in the next several days, unless Lundy agrees to a settlement.
 "Lundy management has gone outside the law to trample on its workers, destroy their rights and threaten their livelihoods. The NLRB is taking action to protect workers' rights and force Lundy to end its lawless conduct," said UFCW Local 204 President Tony Muncus.
 UFCW Local 204 and Operating Engineers Local 465 are conducting a union organizing campaign for about 650 workers employed at the Lundy plant in Clinton.
 A union representation election conducted by the NLRB is scheduled for workers at the plant on June 3, 1993.
 According to union president Muncus, "Workers are not going to give in to Lundy's illegal campaign of intimidation and coercion. Support for the union is strong and workers are going to send to Lundy a message on June 3 that workers want a voice in their wages and working conditions."
