Labor Law Roundup

NLRBA few labor-related news items (because we just haven't had enough this week):

  • The unique aspects to working at an Apple retail store.  Or, "why do a lot people want sell a ton of stuff for low wages?"
  • The RLA, American Airlines, the FAA funding bill, and retroactivity.  This article describes a case involving these issues as possibly spelling the real end to unions.  I don't buy that description, but it's an interesting case not getting much attention. 
  • The NLRB creates a new webpage showing cases involving non-union concerted and protected activity.  I've long thought the Board should do more in this area, so I'm a fan.  Even if you're not, the website does a nice job conveying info and shows why the NLRB has been a web leader among federal agencies for a while.
  • Justin Keith on the D.C. Circuit's recent Du Pont case, which remanded to the Board to explain how the result fit with its precedent.
  • The Board (a couple of weeks ago) asks judge to reconsider ruling against new election rules.

Hat Tips:  Matt Bodie, Patrick Kavanagh

Kenneth Lopatka wrote an excellent textbook about protected rights in the non-union workplace. Westlaw published it about a year ago, I believe, and I highly recommend it.
