Riley Plumer has published “Overriding Tribal Sovereignty by Applying the National Labor Relations Act to Indian Tribes inSoaring Eagle Casino and Resort v. National Labor Relations Board” in Law & Inequality.
This is an action to protect the sovereignty of the Pueblo of Isleta (“Pueblo”) from infringement by the National Labor Relations Board and its members (collectively the “Board”) in violation of federal law, specifically this Circuit’s clear rule that general federal laws do not apply to a tribal government’s exercise of sovereign authority absent express congressional authorization, and that the NLRA does not contain such express authorization. Dobbs v. Anthem Blue Cross & Blue Shield, 600 F.3d 1275, 1283 (10th Cir. 2010). At a hearing to commence on May 5, 2015 the Board intends – unless restrained – to apply the National Labor Relations Act (“NLRA”), 29 U.S.C. §§ 151-169, to the Pueblo’s regulation, operation, and management of gaming in the exercise of its inherent sovereign authority and pursuant to the Indian Gaming Regulatory Act (“IGRA”), 25 U.S.C. §§ 2701-2721, by subjecting the Pueblo to trial on unfair labor practice charges brought under Section 8(a) of the NLRA, 29 U.S.C. § 158(a). The Board is proceeding on behalf of an individual, Shawna Perea (“Perea”), whom the Board alleges was terminated for allegedly engaging in concerted activities protected under Section 7 of the NLRA, 29 U.S.C. § 157.
