Spotlight: NLRB Orders Sprint to Rehire Workers

The National Labor Relations Board has ordered Sprint Corp. to rehire and pay full back pay and benefits to 177 workers whose San Francisco telemarketing office was shut down during a union-organizing drive in 1994, the Communications Workers of America said. The NLRB ruled that Sprint's sudden closing of the office just one week before a scheduled union election violated federal law. Sprint, which said it is appealing the ruling, says it closed the office because it was losing money.
