THE BACKSTORY: Fired Chicago Lake Liquors workers still expect to get jobs back with back pay
According to fired Chi-Lake worker Hallie Wallace, the next step will be for an NLRB representative to present a settlement offer to Chi-Lake owner John Wolf. If Wolf doesn't accept the offer, the case could go before an administrative law judge. In an interview earlier this week, Marlin Osthus, regional director for the local branch of the NLRB, said the board has a perfect record during the last couple of years in cases that have wound up in court.
