Supreme Court: Is Big Labor Destruction of Property Destruction, Okay?

Mark Mix on OAN’s Tipping Point with Kara McKinney; they discussed Big Labor’s Evasion of Liability for Property Destruction and the Foundation’s SCOTUS Amicus brief in Glacier Northwest.


The National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation filed an amicus brief at the United States Supreme Court. The brief argues that the High Court should overturn a Washington Supreme Court decision that created a special exemption for union officials and their “more aggressive” members from liability under state tort law when property destruction and vandalism result from union boss-ordered actions.

The Foundation’s brief was filed in Glacier Northwest Inc. v. International Brotherhood of Teamsters Local 174, which deals with a union boss-ordered strike against construction company Glacier Northwest. Glacier Northwest’s attempt to sue the union over property damage caused by strike activities was denied by the Washington Supreme Court. Washington’s highest court accepted Teamsters lawyers’ argument that the National Labor Relations Act’s (NLRA) allowance for union strikes somehow also immunizes unions from liability when strike activities destroy and vandalize property.
