Building Contractor Wins All Aspects of Strike By Carpenters Union, Plus A Six-Figure Secondary Boycott Settlement
The Carpenters Union struck our client, a national construction contractor, at three large construction projects in Southern California. The strike ended after less than a month, the strikers were replaced, and no delays occurred on any of the projects. We obtained two injunctions against violent and mass picketing and also pursued unfair labor practice charges before the National Labor Relations Board which issued a complaint against the union. In addition, we filed a section 303 lawsuit against the union in federal court that resulted in a six-figure settlement to cover our client’s added security costs necessitated by the union’s unlawful secondary boycott activity.
