Still litigating a 2000 vote - under the NLRA
In NLRB v. Media General Operations Inc., the dispute was over a representation election at Media General's production facility at Mechanicsville, Virginia, where the employees voted in September of 2000 by a count of 16-15 to be represented by the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers. The Court in a published decision written by Judge King and joined by Judge Widener and District Judge Bennett from Maryland sided with the NLRB and against the Company on issues related to the fairness of the election and the Company's subsequent failure to bargain.
