    Essentially the NHRA was found guilty of several board charges. They fired someone illegally for trying to join a union. NHRA has to pay back pay to the guy and rehire him. All discipline from the time period mentioned including the termination must be removed from his file. They essentially tried to lockout the employees by saying no one would be hired for the next season until after the election. That is illegal because it is a form of intimidation during a union election. Also can be viewed as proof they were not going to bargain in good faith with the union. Also NHRA can not conduct surveillance on union activities. Surveillance on union activities is a form of intimidation and also illegal. If NHRA continues surveillance on union activities they could be fined monetarily by the government.

    And after all that... they’re appealing the decision. The judge even said two of their witnesses were not credible.

    I don’t know how the next steps would work but it seems they’ve been investigated by the govt, declined to settle at that time, went through a trial and lost, what will change at an appeal? I honestly think it’s ego’s getting in the way of logic but who knows!

    What was the outcome of the NHRA member that filed a law suite a few years ago saying that NHRA was not a "not for profit" organization

    .

  • The Never Happy Racing Association cant keep thumbing their nose at everyone including the Government. The Powers That Be sit in the Ivory Tower in Glendora and collect there paychecks basically as long as the NHRA runs status quo without to much drama by the minions.

    As we all know the NHRA is very top heavy in salary and has been a revolving door as of late with more than qualified people to do a job who saw the writing on the wall in The Ivory Tower.

    NHRA use to pick one of the best business minds in the business at securing sponsorship deals for racers. Even he would get frustrated with NHRA and there lack of forward thinking and old boys club at the top.

    It will be interesting to see how much longer The Not For Profit Status can go on.
