A federal court challenge is blocking a group of west Michigan bakers from forming a union.
A federal court is preventing the National Labor Relations Board from certifying local union elections, because three of the board’s five members were appointed by President Obama without congressional approval.
In 2012, Panera Bread bakers voted to form a union at 6 locations along I-94 in west Michigan. The NLRB certified the vote. But because of the legal challenge to the president’s appointees, the issue remains in limbo.
