In a recent ruling, the US Supreme Court sided with Starbucks in a case against the National Labor Relations Board regarding reinstatement of workers fired during labor disputes. The court held that federal judges should review NLRB requests for immediate court orders the same way they would examine any other petition for a preliminary injunction.


The court rejected the NLRB’s argument that the National Labor Relations Act directs judges to apply a more lenient standard to the agency’s petitions than they would for preliminary injunction requests that arise in private litigation. The ruling will place additional burdens on the NLRB to win immediate court orders, weakening what has been one of the agency’s most potent tools under the NLRA.
