CASE ENTRY

Voices for International Business and Education, Incorporated v. National Labor Relations Board

Teachers at a Louisiana charter school vote to unionize. The school ignores the vote, arguing that the National Labor Relations Act applies only to private employers, and the school is a political subdivision. Fifth Circuit: The school is privately owned and operated, and has privately chosen board members; it’s a private employer. Concurrence: That’s right, but not because the NLRB said it’s right.
