Supreme Court to Decide If Employers Can Sue Unions Over Vandalism
Updated On: Oct 05, 2022
Oct. 5, 2022 | JUSTICE | The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday agreed to decide whether federal labor law bars a Washington concrete company from suing a union for destroying its property by calling a strike that led to mixed concrete hardening and becoming useless [Glacier Northwest Inc. v. International Brotherhood of Teamsters]. The justices granted Glacier Northwest Inc's petition for review of a Washington Supreme Court decision that said employers cannot sue unions under state law over conduct such as striking that is protected by the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA) … only the National Labor Relations Board could decide whether the union engaged in unlawful conduct, the state court said.
