Adcock v. Freightliner

Date: August 11, 2011

U.S. Supreme Court

The Fourth Circuit’s decision to exempt certain employer concessions from the NLRA’s prohibition against employer assistance creates a massive hole in the statute for the things that unions value most from employers. This loophole endangers the integrity of collective bargaining, as union officials have a strong incentive to compromise employee interests at the bargaining table as a quid pro quo for organizing assistance from their employer.

Status:  DECIDED. Writ of certiorari denied October 2009.
