Supreme Court backs Starbucks over Biden labor board in 'Memphis 7' union case

E-mail Print PDF
Memphis 7 defeated in SCOTUSThe Supreme Court sided with Starbucks on Thursday in a high-profile labor dispute, issuing a ruling that could set back the Biden administration's push to strengthen unions.

The decision is a disappointment for the labor movement at a time when it is winning significant union fights and is benefitting from the Biden administration’s aggressive National Labor Relations Board.

"It underscores how the economy is rigged against working people all the way up to the Supreme Court," said Lynne Fox, president of Workers United, the union negotiating with Starbucks.

The decision could make it harder to force companies to reinstate workers who were fired for union organizing. The court ruled that judges have to consider more factors before ordering employers to reinstate fired workers.
