U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit
The appellate court will decide whether the organizing assistance that includes lists of information about nonunion employees, use of private company property for organizing, and a gag-clause on company communications with its employees about unionization are “things of value,” making it illegal under Section 302 of the Labor Management Relations Act for the union to demand them. If the case is successful, it will be illegal in Florida, Georgia, and Alabama (and potentially elsewhere) for unions to demand that from an employer.
Status: PENDING. Amicus brief in support of Mulhall filed 3/28/11.
