Good Samaritan Medical Center v. NLRB, 15-1347

In a case in which an employee was purportedly terminated for violating his hospital employer's civility policy, following a heated exchange regarding a union delegate's alleged remark that plaintiff had to join the union in order to work at the hospital, and in which the NLRB found that the union caused employer to discharge plaintiff because of his protected conduct, in violation of Section 8 of the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA), the defendant's petition for relief is granted and the NLRB's application for enforcement order is denied where: 1) there is considerable contradictory evidence in the record that the NLRB failed to consider; and 2) on the record as a whole, there is not substantial evidence that plaintiff was discharged because of his protected conduct.
