The U.S. Supreme Court heard arguments on May 23 from the National Labor Relations Board about overseeing the labor practices at two tribal owned casinos in Michigan.
Earlier this year the Saginaw Chippewa Indian Tribe and the Little River Band of Ottawa Indians petitioned the U.S. Supreme Court to over turn a previous ruling made by the Sixth Circuit court. That ruling was in favor of the NLRB to oversee employment practices at the casinos.
As of now, workers at the Little River Band's tribal casino are not allowed to strike or cause slow down under tribal law. The NLRB has been attempting to stop the law since under the National Labor Relations Act it is not allowed.
The tribes believe that the ruling should be changed because the National Labor Relations Act do not apply to tribal owned casinos and tribal sovereignty.
