Employees voting against unionizing on January 25, but now some are saying they will file unfair labor practices against the company over allegations that pro-union employees were fired or otherwise disciplined, according to The Associated Press.
Tudor's Biscuit World is a popular, regional fast food restaurant with around 70 locations, most of which are in West Virginia, according to their website. Workers at the Elkview, West Virginia, location began their efforts to unionize late last year, alleging unsafe working conditions related to the pandemic and other inadequate treatment, according to a November press release from United Food & Commercial Workers Local 400, the union aiming to represent the employees.
Tuesday, a National Labor Relations Board representative read the results of votes that were sent in over the last several weeks, the AP reported. About two dozen people work at the Elkview restaurant, with 20 eligible to vote.
