[Ed. note – I’ve been saying for a while now that those trying to shut down the BDS movement are essentially waging a war against the First Amendment. Now it seems that a major labor union, the United Electrical, Radio and Machine Workers of America–and apparently even the National Labor Relations Board as well–agree with me. This is good news, not least because the ruling went against the litigious Israeli “lawfare” firm Shurat HaDin. ]

An Israeli law firm with links to Mossad has lost a case it brought against the United Electrical, Radio and Machine Workers of America (UE), after the trade union endorsed the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement at its national convention in August 2015.
A report on the UE website states that, on January 12, the National Labor Relations Board dismissed an unfair labour practice charge brought by Shurat HaDin. UE, an independent union representing some 35,000 workers in a manufacturing, public sector and private non-profit sector jobs, was the first national US union to endorse BDS.
