ACRP Legal Research Digest 31: Preemption of Worker-Retention and Labor-Peace Agreements at Airports

Transportation Research Board's Airport Cooperative Research Program

February 2017

Kaplan Kirsch & Rockwell partner Eric Smith has authored an overview for airport management personnel and other interested personnel—such as airport authority board members and elected officials—to explain the issues related to labor-harmony or labor-peace agreements.  These agreements typically require an organization to become signatory to some form of an agreement with a labor organization and may lead to implications and legal entanglements.
