Teamsters Local 523 is now petitioning the Supreme Court to review the decision of the three-member NLRB panel, as well as a subsequent July 2012 decision by the Tenth Circuit Court to affirm it.

The union’s petition was docketed on Oct. 25, 2012.

An attorney for Rammage issued a compliance specification computing on Nov. 26 stating that Rammage is owed $47,337 in damages.

An attorney for Teamsters Local 523 prepared the affidavit, signed by Teamsters Local 523 President Ketchum and notarized Dec. 12, to dispute the computation.

Teamsters Local 523 listed twelve challenges to the NLRB and Tenth Circuit Court decisions in its affidavit. The reference to the unconstitutional recess appointments appears in the first challenge.

A hearing on the compliance specification is scheduled for Jan. 31, 2013.
