Citing a widespread pattern of unfair labor practices, the National Labor Relations Board ordered a national nursing home operator to stop intimidating workers who seek to join unions. The company called the decision "fundamentally flawed." In a decision consolidating more than 100 cases against Beverly Enterprises Inc., the NLRB found that the extent and severity of the violations of workers' rights called for a corporate-wide order against the company. The charges were brought by locals from several unions, including the United Food and Commercial Workers and the Service Employees International Union, involving actions at 26 facilities in 15 states. Shares of Fort Smith, Ark.-based Beverly fell 13 cents to close at $8.81 on the NYSE.
