Washington Law Review


Joyce M. Thomas


Since the passage of the labor reform legislation of 1959, a member of a labor organization engaged in an industry affecting commerce has certain federally-recognized rights in addition to his rights under state law. In many instances he may have a choice between a state and a federal forum when he seeks a remedy against his union. In this Comment, the federal rights and remedies and the existing Washington law will be examined in broad summary form1 in order to evaluate the factors influencing the choice of forum.
