Union Violence is Perfectly Legal in U.S.

Celebrating Labor Day in the spirit of Social Justice

United States v. Enmons, 410 U.S. 396 (1973) is a controversial U.S. Supreme Court case which held that violence, if carried out in furtherance of a labor union's objectives, does not violate the law according to the extortion and robbery provisions of the federal anti-Racketeering Act of 1934 or the Hobbs Act.

The case involved a labor strike in which union members fired rifles at three utility company transformers, drained the oil from another, and blew up an entire company substation. The labor union in question was seeking a higher-pay contract and other benefits from their employer, the Gulf States Utilities Company.

The Court decided that the union involved was immune from prosecution because their violent acts were in pursuit of a legitimate union objective.
