  • Teamster’s beating subject of trial testimony

    Boston Globe - 10/02/2014

    Roger Abrams, a professor at Northeastern University School of Law who specializes in labor law, said that the public should realize union activity, “whether it’s a strike, whether it’s talking to employers, is not necessarily a tea party and it’s not necessarily polite conversation.”

    With state and federal laws allowing union members to engage in a broad range of activity, as long as the end game is a union objective, then it will be up to jurors to see the difference between legitimate union work and a federal crime, he said.

    “There are lines,” Abrams said, speaking generally, and not about the case. “It seems there are legitimate differences of what involves a crime, and that is why we have a trial.”
