On Monday, November 24th Alta Bicycle Share terminated a supervisor at Capital Bikeshare for illegal activity under the National Labor Relations Act.

Our company supports the right of its employees to consider whether or not they want to join a union and we are committed to facilitating a fair election process that is consistent with legal framework established by the NLRA.

There is no question that the employee who was terminated was a supervisor and member of management. He managed a team of 10 employees, was responsible for hiring, scheduling, disciplining and performance reviews, and served as the point person for his department at senior staff and safety committee meetings.

In order to protect the rights of employees, the NLRA states that supervisors are not legally permitted to engage in union organizing.

The employee was notified that his actions were not legal due to his status as a supervisor. He was given a second chance. But he continued his union organizing activity and was subsequently terminated due to his illegal activities.

The company took this action, consistent with the law, to protect our employees’ rights to a fair and unbiased secret ballot election to determine whether or not to unionize.
