The California Trucking Association Takes AB5 Petition to Supreme Court

On Monday, August 9th, the California Trucking Association filed a petition for a writ of certiorari with the US Supreme Court. The panel from the CTA’s last attempt “concluded that AB 5 is a generally applicable labor law that affects a motor carrier’s relationship with its workforce and does not bind, compel, or otherwise freeze into place the prices, routes, or services of motor carriers.”

The CTA is requesting the Supreme Court weigh in on this issue because enforcement of AB5 will “up-end the trucking industry’s long standing business model” and “will destroy the uniformity necessary for the free flow of interstate commerce and the operation of nationwide business.”
