Employment Law Case of the Week

In the case of Rose v. RTN Federal Credit Union, __ F.3d __ (2021), the First Circuit Court of Appeals held that the Labor Management Relations Act preempted the plaintiff's wage claims under the Massachusetts Wage Act (M.G.L.c. 149, s. 148) because she was a member of a union and because her employer had an existing collective bargaining agreement with the union that governed her wages and overtime pay.
