Menard Inc. agrees to change policies violating labor laws

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Menard Inc. has agreed to change some practices after the National Labor Relations Board found it was violating federal labor law.

The board found in April that the Eau Claire-based retailer has been improperly requiring employees to sign mandatory-arbitration agreements that bar them from engaging in class-action lawsuits. The board also found that Menards has withheld merit pay raises for workers engaged in protected union activities.

In a settlement agreement with the board Wednesday, Menards agrees to rectify those issues.

Seth Goldstein, a representative with the Office and Professional Employees International Union who filed the initial complaint with the board, called it a major victory for employees.

A company spokeswoman said Menards had no immediate comment Wednesday afternoon.
