Plaintiffs v. Norwegian Seafarer’s Union – Continued

Motion to Remand

In this motion to remand, the Plaintiffs are present and future seafarers who are “represented” by the Norwegian Seafarers Union.  Plaintiffs filed suit to declare that the Norwegian Seafarers Union does not in fact represent them and that all collective bargaining agreements negotiated by the Norwegian Seafarers Union are void.  The Defendant removed the case to federal court, and in this motion the Plaintiffs argue that the case should be remanded back to state court to preserve the Plaintiffs’ choice of forum.
