Supreme Court Ruling on Bernstein v. Virgin America
Originally posted June 30, 2022
The Supreme Court of the United States issued a ruling today that denied an appeal from Alaska Airlines to reconsider a lower court’s ruling in the case of Bernstein v. Virgin America. The lawsuit claimed that various California labor laws had been violated related to wages, hours worked, pay, and meal and rest breaks. The suit was originally filed against Virgin America and became the responsibility of Alaska Airlines after the merger between the two companies. Management has distributed multiple employee communications complaining that they will now have to obey the law but has not shown that they are focused on practical solutions. AFA stands ready to work out a solution with management that is compliant with the law and is a mutually agreeable path forward for all stakeholders.
