Eighth Circuit Rejects Challenge to Collective Bargaining for Minnesota Homecare Workers

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit on August 14, 2018 rejected a constitutional challenge to Minnesota statutes that permit homecare workers paid by the State to democratically elect a union representative for collective bargaining over the terms of their employment.  Similar challenges have been rejected by the First, Second, and Seventh Circuits.

Altshuler Berzon LLP represented SEIU Healthcare Minnesota in defending the state law.
