Rare 100-Year Injunction Issued Against Ironworkers Local Union 395 (INDIANA (ECWd)) -A federal Judge issued an extremely rare injunction against a union labor organization in the Northern District of Indiana.
“Pursuant to the stipulated agreement between the Plaintiffs and Local 395, Local 395, its officers, agents and employees are hereby enjoined for 100 years from appearing on jobsites or where D5 Iron Works, Inc., and its employees are present, for purposes of interacting with D5 Iron Works, Inc. or its employees, and will not visit any of the homes of the named Plaintiffs”
Previously, we wrote about two Ironworkers Local 359 officials, Tom Williamson Sr. and Jeffery Veach, who were sentenced to 54 and 42 months in federal prison (also here), after both of them entered a plea of guilty in criminal trials following their indictment.
This injunction prohibits Ironworkers Local Union 395 from interfering, appearing on jobsites or interacting, in any way, with D5 Iron Works, Inc., jobsites, employees or officers, or homes of plaintiffs.
This case took more than 6 years and 4 months to complete – longer than winning World War II.
Since it is part of a stipulated agreement the injunction cannot be appealed.
Attorneys for D5 Ironworks were Rob Hanlon and Michael Avakian.
