An Anti-Union Starbucks Employee Challenges the Structure of U.S. Labor Board

A Starbucks Corp employee who wants to dissolve a union at a New York store filed a lawsuit on Wednesday claiming the structure of the federal agency overseeing a nationwide union campaign targeted at the coffee chain is unconstitutional.

The worker, Ariana Cortes, filed the lawsuit in Washington, D.C. federal court after an official at the U.S. National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) dismissed her petition seeking to decertify the union at the Buffalo, New York, store where she works. Cortes is represented by the conservative National Right to Work Foundation.

Cortes claims that restrictions in U.S. labor law on the president’s ability to remove the NLRB’s five members from office violate the U.S. Constitution.
