Plaintiff's claims of defamation, wrongful discharge and intentional infliction of emotional distress are preempted by section 301 of the federal Labor Management Relations Act, 1947 (29 USC § 185), because they require interpretation of a collective bargaining agreement (Griffiths v Triangle Servs., Inc., 59 AD3d 278 ).
