Settlement pending in tribal labor dispute
Thursday, August 7, 2003

A California tribe's health organization will pay $100,000 to settle claims that it fired employees for trying to organize a labor union, The Nevada City Union reports.

Chapa-De Indian Health Program is operated by the Rumsey Indian Rancheria. The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that the tribe was not exempt from the National Labor Relations Act. The court said the program's clinics were not located on tribal land and did not employ or serve large numbers of Native Americans.

The ruling was not appealed to the Supreme Court. The federal circuits have arrived at different interpretations about the extent federal labor law applies to tribes.
