Author: Irene Stavrellis Englert, Englert Legal Consulting, LLC

In Five Star Transp., Inc. v. NLRB, +522 F.3d 46 (1st Cir. 2008), the 1st Circuit Court of Appeals considered three questions: (1) whether the bus drivers where protected by the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA) even though they were not Five Star's employees; (2) whether the bus drivers' sending letters to the town was "concerted activity" under the NLRA; and (3) whether the bus drivers' actions lost any NLRA protection because they were not part of a labor dispute and were abusive, reckless and disloyal.
