This Article surveys the 1998 decisions of the United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit that addressed issues in the areas of traditional labor law. This article specifically discusses decisions by the Eleventh Circuit under the Labor Management Relations Act ("LMRA"), the National Labor Relations Act ("NLRA"), the Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938 ("FLSA7), and the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 ("ERISA"). As in the years past, the Eleventh Circuit decided several cases that involved issues of interest in the area of traditional labor law. Due to page limitations, however, this Article cannot survey every relevant case.
