Michigan Building and Construction Trades Council v. Snyder

Date: June 22, 2012

In July 2011, Governor Snyder signed the “Michigan Fair & Open Competition in Governmental Construction Act,” which prohibits government entities from awarding contracts with Project Labor Agreements (PLAs). In response, the Michigan Building & Construction Trades Council, AFL-CIO sued to block the law. In February a federal district court declared the law invalid, finding that it impermissibly interferes with the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA). The NFIB Legal Center has filed an amicus brief in support of Michigan's appeal.

Status: Pending - U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit.
