Many of you may be wondering how the death of Justice Scalia will affect the Friedrich’s currently before the SCOTUS. There are differing opinions and several scenarios that could potentially play out. Much will be determined based on how/ when a replacement can be confirmed. One thing is for certain we are not “out of the woods” with Friedrich’s in addition there are other cases very similar to Friedrich’s that have been filed in lower courts throughout the country including one out of Westerly, RI. Our diligence, commitment to our work & to each other must remain in place. We must remain steadfast in protecting our jobs!
Below please find a few explanations on where we stand in regards to Friedrich’s & the current make up of the SCOTUS. The second link is from our adversaries at CIR. I included this link because it is important we understand where our enemies are coming from in there efforts to dismantle the modern American Labor Movement.
We expect to have contract books available at the March 8th Membership meeting
