NLRB Strikes Deal to Protect Ecuadorian Employees in the United States

Richard Griffin, the Board’s General Counsel, and Nathalie Cely, Ecuador’s Ambassador, signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) setting forth a framework for cooperative efforts to provide Ecuadorian workers information and guidance regarding their rights and responsibilities under the National Labor Relations Act. This memorandum is virtually identical to the one that former acting General Counsel Lafe Solomon struck with the ambassador of Mexico. The Board has been on an MOU binge lately – including some with OSHA, DOJ, and the Chicago Commission on Human Relations.
