Mashantucket Tribe to fight decision on union election at casino
Friday, November 19, 2010
The Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation of Connecticut will continue to fight the imposition of federal labor law on the reservation.
Engineering employees at Foxwoods Resort Casino recently voted to join the International Union of Operating Engineers. The tribe challenged the election but it was upheld by the National Labor Relations Board.
The tribe wants labor unions to follow tribal law rather than federal law.
