NLRB vs. Friendly Cab Company

More union stuff. And Bush is still President?

The 9th Circuit determined today that the drivers for the Friendly Cab Company in Oakland are considered to be employees, rather than the independent contractors that Friendly considered them to be.

With this decision, the Court also determined that Friendly violated the tenets of the NLRB by restricting the drivers’ rights to organize by refusing to meet with the East Bay Taxi Drivers Union.

Friendly, of course, is appealing. Not very friendly.
