Supreme Court to hear union organizing case
Andrew Harrer

Oral arguments will be delivered Wednesday before the U.S. Supreme Court in what one expert said is “the most significant labor case in a generation.”

The case involves a challenge to what’s known as “neutrality agreements” in which employers agree not to oppose unionization drives.

According to the New York Times, more than half of recent successful unionization campaigns involve such agreements, which in some instances allow organizers to talk with workers on company property.

Benjamin Sachs, a professor of labor law at Harvard Law School, told the Times that if the court ruled against the agreements, it could significantly hobble efforts by private sector unions to organize workers.

Sachs, who told the Times he considered the case to be, “the most significant labor case in a generation,” said some conservative legal scholars are uncomfortable with efforts to ban neutrality agreements because that would limit employers’ freedom to make contracts.
