CASE ENTRY

Ameren Illinois Company v. International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, Local Union 51

Illinois power company worker, known for packing heat, gets into arguments with supervisor. Company searches his car (with consent), finds gun, fires him for violating no-gun policy. Arbitrator: Reinstate him. Illinois law lets people keep guns in cars on private property (unless there’s clear signage otherwise), which trumps the company’s policy. Seventh Circuit: Yeah, give him his job back. Do you even know how hard it is to overturn an arbitration award?
