• Diana Vallera: thought her house was being watched

Once again, the National Labor Relations Board has ordered Columbia College to bargain in good faith with P-fac, the union representing its part-time faculty, and to quit discriminating against active union members.

In an order handed down Friday by administrative law judge Geoffrey Carter, Columbia was instructed to, among other things, remove from its files any reference to its decision to discipline P-fac president Diana Vallera for “telling others about her belief that [Columbia] conducted surveillance at her home.” (Columbia denied this.) The college was also ordered to compensate Vallera for wages and benefits she lost due to its “discrimination against her.”
