Companies can now sue unions for damages incurred by striking, according to a Supreme Court ruling released on Thursday morning.

The case sets a new precedent for how companies can respond to striking workers, as large-scale strikes become more common in the U.S. Advertisement.

According to the brief of the case, the contract expired without the two being able to come to a resolution, and as a result, union workers went on strike.

However, the work day had already begun, and concrete was already being mixed and delivered when the union ordered a work stoppage.

Only Justice Jackson, the newest addition to the court appointed by Joe Biden last year, voted in dissent.

“This is a vehicle that the right wing is using to try to stop us from striking,” Goldstein said.

The new labor movement is going to continue and they're going to continue demanding fair conditions at work. »
