Second Injunction Against Pacific Beach Hotel Affirmed by 9th Circuit
A second injunction against HTH Corporation, operator of the Pacific Beach Hotel, was affirmed by the Ninth Circuit in a long-running labor dispute involving the Hotel and the International Longshore and Warehouse Union, Local 142.
The first injunction against the employer had ordered the reinstatement of a houseman who had been terminated allegedly for his union organizing activities. The second injunction was sought by the NLRB after the reinstated employee was fired three months later “for allegedly breaking unwritten, and seemingly minor, Hotel rules,” the Court opinion says.
HTH is once again ordered to bargain in good faith, to rescind its unilateral changes, to fur¬nish the Union with the information it requested, to reinstate the employee, and to post and read aloud to the Hotel’s employ¬ees a notice of the employees’ rights and the Hotel’s obliga¬tions under the Act, the Court’s decision states.
