SEIU filed a complaint with the National Labor Relations Board to enforce an agreement that was not finalized.

In a complaint filed with the NLRB, the union claimed it reached an agreement with Prime in November 2014 on all of the substantive and material terms of a collective bargaining agreement for 1,100 employees at Encino (Calif.) Hospital Medical Center, Centinela Hospital Medical Center in Inglewood, Calif., and Garden Grove (Calif.) Hospital Medical Center. After terms of the deal were set, Prime failed to execute the collective bargaining agreement, according to SEIU-UHW.

Prime disputed the union’s claims and argued the parties never agreed on the material terms of the collective bargaining agreement and execution of an agreement was contingent on certain factors that were not met…

The hospital network maintains that the parties never reached an agreement. “In fact, the evidence before the administrative law judge included an e-mail from the union’s chief negotiator stating that the parties had never finalized the agreement,” said Ms. [Elizabeth] Nikels [spokeswoman for Prime].
