In GGNSC Springfield LLC v. NLRB, the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals overturned an NLRB determination that an employer violated federal labor law. Twelve registered nurses (RNs) voted to have the AFL-CIO represent them. However, their employer refused to negotiate with the union because it considered the nurses “supervisors” who are, under federal law, prohibited from unionizing. The court of appeals agreed, finding the RNs’ actual duties, as well as their written job descriptions, qualified them as supervisors under the National Labor Relations Act.
