Labor: Cease And Desist – Coercion – Fencing Installation

Where the National Labor Relations Board ordered a union to cease and desist from coercing a newly formed commercial fencing subcontractor from doing work for a non-union contractor, the union’s petition for review is denied because the union did not have an unfettered right to refuse a Section 8(F) contract for a motive that the relevant act declared to be unlawful.

Petition for review denied; cross petition granted.
