US Supreme Court Decides 14 Penn Plaza

Today, in an opinion written by Justice Thomas, a 5-judge majority of the United States Supreme Court held that "a collective-bargaining agreement that clearly and unmistakably requires union members to arbitrate ADEA claims is enforceable as a matter of federal law."  So, essentially, a union can waive an individual employee's right to sue in court for discrimination.
