Air transport trade associations had associational standing to sue a city over a licensing scheme which obligates airport businesses to enter into a "labor peace agreement" with any employee organization that requests one. City was acting as a market participant in imposing this scheme, which served the limited purpose of minimizing service disruptions at the city's airport. The National Labor Relations Act, the Railway Labor Act, and the Airline Deregulation Act do not preempt actions taken by states and local governments in their capacity as market participants.
