A petition has been filed to decertify the union representing employees at Nordstrom Inc.'s Tacoma store, the retailer said. Nordstrom said Sunday that it was notified of the filing by the National Labor Relations Board. The store has 310 employees represented by Local 367 of the United Food and Commercial Workers Union. To hold a decertification election, at least 30% of the employees in a bargaining unit must sign the petition.

A top Nordstrom Inc. executive called a Seattle newspaper's coverage of the retailer's labor problems "horrible," but he said the company's decision to cut advertising in the paper wasn't meant as retaliation. Co-chairman Jim Nordstrom said the company was only taking a closer look at the effectiveness of its advertising. Nordstrom spokeswoman Megan McKenzie said the company told The Seattle Times and Seattle Post-Intelligencer on Friday that it was cutting back on its ads.

Management at South Coast Plaza's posh Crystal Court annex thinks its sales clerks should dine out more often. Retail workers at the $80-million mall have been given the hint to take their brown bags elsewhere. A mall newsletter last week not-so-subtly informed employees that "there's a perfect spot" half a mile from the Costa Mesa shopping center. "A beautiful park will provide you with a much-needed respite, so grab your brown bag and escape."
