Here Are The Supreme Court’s First Cases Of 2023

Ohio Adjutant General’s Department v. Federal Labor Relations Authority

In this case, Monday the justices are set to decide on if a 1978 law regulating the labor practices of federal agencies extends to Ohio National Guard technicians.

While the National Guard is organized by individual states, the federal government can activate it for missions. And in 2016, the Ohio National Guard attempted to end a collective bargaining agreement with its civilian technicians. Though the technicians union put in a complaint with the Federal Labor Relations Authority alleging that the Guard didn’t negotiate in good faith. The FLRA sided with the union, though the Ohio National Guard argued that the technicians are not federal executive agency employees so the FLRA never had authority.
