LA Unions and the Supreme Court

Hosted by

Labor unions have used so-called "neutrality agreements" to organize workers in LA and other parts of California. Unite Here struck such a deal with Hyatt Hotels this summer in Los Angeles and other cities. Today, the US Supreme Court heard arguments that "neutrality agreements" violate federal law because they are "things of value." History Professor Nelson Lichtenstein is director of the Center for the Study of Work, Labor and Democracy at UC Santa Barbara.
