32BJ SEIU Issues Response Following Critical SCOTUS Glacier Ruling
Washington, DC-In response to the Supreme Court of the United State’s ruling on Glacier Northwest, Inc. v. International Brotherhood of Teamster, 32BJ SEIU President Manny Pastreich issued the following statement:
“SCOTUS’ 8-1 ruling today fits with the current court’s hostility towards organized labor and tendency to side with multi-billion dollar corporations over the interests of working people. At the same time, the ruling should not lead anyone to believe there was a ‘deathblow’ to organized labor’s right to strike. In fact, given the opportunity to side with the bosses and heavily curtail the right to strike and undercut the National Labor Relations Act, one of the most right-wing Supreme Courts in recent history did neither. While this supreme court continues to eat away at worker rights and protections, we move forward to fight and strike whenever necessary, another day.”
With more than 175,000 members in 12 states, 32BJ SEIU is the largest property service workers union in the country.
