The National Labor Relations Board issued a complaint against a Paramount-based supermarket chain for allegedly restraining employees from advocating for union representation, it was announced Wednesday.
The complaint against the El Super chain alleges that the company has refused to bargain with unions for more than a year after failing to agree on a contract with the local United Food and Commercial Workers.
The NLRB alleges that Fermin Rodriguez, a cashier and shop steward, was fired from the chain for her union activities.
An El Super representative could not immediately be reached for comment.
The UFCW represents about 600 El Super workers at seven stores in the Southland. The chain’s employees have been working without a contract since September 2013, according to the union.
