Court: Unions entitled to info about nonunion employees

by on
in Employment Law,Human Resources

In a significant win for organized labor, the Supreme Court of California has ruled that a union is entitled to the home addresses and telephone numbers of employees who aren’t union members.

Recent case: The Service Em­­ployees International Union (SEIU) won the right to represent several classes of Los Angeles County employees. The county, citing em­­ployee privacy concerns, refused to give SEIU a list of home addresses and phone numbers for employees who chose not to join the union.

The Supreme Court of California said the union was entitled to the in­­formation and that the union’s need to represent all employees in the bargaining unit (and therefore commu­nicate with them) outweighed those employees’ privacy concerns. (County of Los Angeles v. Los Angeles Em­­ployee Relations Commission, et al., No. S191944, Supreme Court of Cali­­fornia, 2013)
