This week, the U.S. Supreme Court heard oral arguments for the case Unite Here Local 355 v. Martin Mulhall et al., which will decide the legality of neutrality agreements —assurances that employers will support a union's right to organize.

In an op-ed for Al Jazeera America, I cover the case, stating, “Even under the best circumstances, the Supreme Court has regularly misinterpreted the history and purpose of federal labor laws.”

At stake is a further limiting of the power of unions to organize and the possibility that, if found illegal, neutrality agreements will dissolve, ensuring employers may not have to cooperate with union organizing.
