Supreme Court Strikes Down California Labor Law.

Fisher Phillips • June 20, 2008
The U.S. Supreme Court delivered a substantial victory for those employers who choose to take efforts to fend off union campaigns at their workplaces. In a 7 to 2 decision, the Court found that the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA) preempts a California law that prohibits certain employers from using State funds to assist or deter unionization efforts by their employees. A contrary decision could have opened the door for other states to utilize their spending and regulatory power to restrict employer free-speech rights during union organizing campaigns.
