NLRB jurisdiction over religious institutions

More change seems to be in the air.Question 1: Does the NLRB have jurisdiction over Pacific Lutheran University, a self-identified “religiously affiliated educational institution"? (Remember NLRB v. Catholic Bishop, 440 U.S. 490 (1979).)

Question 2: Are the University's faculty members managers rather than employees? (Remember NLRB v. Yeshiva University, 444 U.S. 672 (1980).)

These are the basic questions the NLRB is asking in the Pacific Lutheran University case. The Board is inviting briefs on 12 specific questions. [Invitation] Briefs are due on or before March 28.
