Supreme Court Holds That International Unions Are Not Accountable For Inducing Locals To Violate Collective Bargaining Agreements.

Fisher Phillips • June 25, 2010
In the final labor and employment law decision for the 2009-10 term, on June 24, 2010, the Supreme Court held that a unionized employer may not pursue an action against an international union for inciting a local union to violate the terms of a collective bargaining agreement. The Supreme Court also held that it was a court's job (rather than an arbitrator's job) to determine whether a collective bargaining agreement with an arbitration clause was actually entered into.
