The Board further found that the Respondent violated Section 8(a)(5) and (1) by making several unilateral changes to employees’ terms and conditions of employment after it unlawfully withdrew recognition from the Union. Finally, the Board affirmed the judge’s conclusion that the Respondent violated Section 8(a)(1) when a supervisor unlawfully provided aid to the decertification petition filed after the withdrawal of recognition.
