This spring, the Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in Cedar Point Nursery v. Hassid, the only property rights case this term.
Two California-based agricultural businesses are asking the Supreme Court to invalidate California’s unlawful union access regulation, which requires all agricultural employers to allow union organizers access to their private property for up to three hours a day, 120 days a year—for the purpose of trying to recruit new members. When unions access these private facilities, they often disrupt business operations and intimidate employees.
What’s at stake? Nothing less than the fundamental right to exclude people from your own, private property. If California’s access rule is allowed to stand, then government can permit anyone to enter private property at any time, essentially taking away your property rights.
