Lindsay v. Ass'n. of Prof'l. Flight Attendants, No. 08-4122

By FindLaw Staff on September 21, 2009 5:14 PM

In a Railway Labor Act (RLA) action challenging the validity of a Restructuring Participation Agreement reached between plaintiff flight attendants' former employer and their union, summary judgment for defendants is affirmed where: 1) the relevant RLA provisions, 45 U.S.C. section 152, First and Seventh, do not provide a private cause of action; 2) the RLA preempted plaintiffs' state law claims; and 3) plaintiffs failed to adduce sufficient evidence of a material factual dispute on their fair representation claim to defeat summary judgment.
