NATIONAL LABOR RELATIONS BOARD, PETITIONER
STRATFORD LITHOGRAPHERS, INC., RESPONDENT
Moore and Feinberg, Circuit Judges, and Bonsal,*fn* District Judge.
Author: Per Curiam
The National Labor Relations Board seeks enforcement of its order which, inter alia, requires respondent Stratford Lithographers, Inc. to bargain with Local 1, Amalgamated Lithographers of America, International Typographical Union, AFL-CIO, and to offer reinstatement to certain employees with back pay and other benefits. 168 NLRB No. 65 (1967). There was substantial evidence before the Board that respondent violated sections 8(a)(1) and (3) of the National Labor Relations Act by unlawfully interrogating employees concerning their union activities and attitudes, by offering or granting benefits to discourage union activities, by threatening losses to employees if they joined the union, by soliciting employees to deal directly with the company, and by instituting discriminatory dismissals, layoffs, transfers, salary increases and bonuses. There was also substantial evidence to support the Board's finding that the union represented a majority of the employees in the appropriate unit. We see no proper reason to set aside the Board's determination that under the circumstances a bargaining order was necessary.
