U.S. Supreme Court

Office Employees v. Labor Board, 353 U.S. 313 (1957)

Office Employees International Union, Local No. 11,

AFL-CIO v. National Labor Relations Board

No. 422

Argued March 28, 1957

Decided May 6, 1957

353 U.S. 313

Syllabus

1. When a labor organization engaged in multistate activities takes on the role of an employer, it is an "employer" within the meaning of § 2(2) of the National Labor Relations Act, the Act applies to its operations the same as it would to those of any other employer, and the National Labor Relations Board has the same jurisdiction over labor disputes between such a labor organization and its employees as it would have in the case of any other employer. Pp. 353 U. S. 313-318.

2. In this case, the Board's refusal to assert jurisdiction over labor unions, as a class, when acting as employers was contrary to the intent of Congress, was arbitrary, and was beyond the Board's power. Pp. 353 U. S. 318-320.

98 U.S.App.D.C. 325, 235 F.2d 832, reversed and remanded.
