Gender-based hostile work environmental claim not preempted under Labor Management Relations Act

District court erred in holding that an employee’s state law gender-based hostile work environmental claim was preempted under Sec. 301 of the Labor Management Relations Act. The claim was not grounded in any right created by the CBA, and nothing in the nature of the claim required interpretation of the CBA.
