Local 917, International Brotherhood of Teamsters v. NLRB, No. 07-2424

Petition for review of a decision of the NLRB is denied where the Board properly ruled that plaintiff's effort to enforce the work preservation clause of the collective bargaining agreement amounted to a boycott in violation of the National Labor Relations Act sec. 8(e). The Board's award of attorneys fees to the employer is reversed where the employer withheld a document from the union in defiance of a discovery order and thus prolonged the proceedings.
