NOTICE AND INVITATION TO FILE BRIEFS

     On June 7, 2004, the Board (Chairman Battista, Members Schaumber and Meisburg; Members Liebman and Walsh, dissenting) granted the Petitioners’ Requests for Review of the Regional Directors’ administrative dismissals of the petitions in the instant cases “as they raise substantial issues regarding whether the Employers’ voluntary recognition of the Union bars a decertification petition for a reasonable period of time under the circumstances of these cases.” The Board also granted the Petitioners’ motion to consolidate the cases and their motion requesting that the Board solicit amicus briefs on the issues raised in these cases.

         Accordingly, the parties and additional interested amici are invited to file briefs with the Board in Washington, D.C. on or before July 15, 2004, addressing the issues raised in these cases.  No extensions of time will be granted for the filing of these briefs, which shall not exceed 50 pages in length.  The parties may file responses to these briefs on or before July 29, 2004.  No extensions of time will be granted for filing responses, which shall not exceed 20 pages in length.  No other responsive briefs will be accepted.

     The Board has included these two cases in a single notice inviting the filing of briefs in order to afford the opportunity to other interested amici to fully address the issues that are raised by these two cases that were consolidated for decision.  Accordingly, eight copies of the brief should be filed addressing both cases.

     Dated, Washington, D.C., June 14, 2004

     By direction of the Board:

                                   Lester A. Heltzer

                                   Executive Secretary
