Yesterday, I reported that the NLRB had issued a decision certifying the election last fall of the UAW as the bargaining representative of the Foxwoods Casino Table Dealers.

Since that last post, the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation has released a statement indicating that they will, in fact, appeal the decision.

The Day has the details in this report.  (The Hartford Courant’s article is here but lacks the details of The Day’s article.)  The UAW, as expected, has called on Foxwoods to now bargain with it, but Foxwoods has signaled that it will not.

None of this is frankly unexpected.  Until the U.S. Court of Appeals (or the U.S. Supreme Court) decides the issue of sovereign immunity, this case is far from over.
