Saginaw Chippewa Tribe repeals ban on unions
The Saginaw Chippewa Tribe of Michigan has repealed its law that banned unions on the reservation.

The tribe repealed the law in order to avoid a hearing before the National Labor Relations Board. The Teamsters union filed a complaint with the NLRB, claiming the ban was an unfair labor practice.

The NLRB was set to hear the issue this month but the tribe and the union, which unsuccessfully tried to organize among tribal employees, settled the dispute. The tribe contends federal labor law doesn't apply on the reservation.
