The injunction was to become effective on posting of bond, according to an order is- sued by Linn District Judge Clinton Shaeffer Friday. First Avenue Co., owner of the hotel, alleged in a petition seeking the injunction that per- sons from several labor organi- zations had posed a threat to persons seeking to enter the hotel by massing in groups of from 25 lo 150 on several oc- casions. Defendants Named as defendants are local 497 of the Hotel and Res- taurant Employes and Bartend- ers union, local 1362 of the In- ternational Brotherhood of Elec- trical Workers, the Hawkeye Labor Council and certain indi- viduals and agents of these or- ganizations. The petition alleges that the representatives of local 497 have been negotiating with the hotel for a labor agreement, but that no agreement has been entered into. The hotel contends the defend- ants have engaged in numerous acts of intimidation, coercion, threats of violence, violence and acts resulting in damage to property. Three Dates petition alleges large numbers of pickets were present at the hotel on Oct. 24 and 26 and Dec. 7. Damage was done to a vehicle at the ramp en- trance, according to the suit, and on Oct. 26 a customer at- tempting to enter the hotel was physically assaulted. The company contends the acts constitute a conspiracy to force the hotel lo comply with labor demands and that such action is contrary to state stat- ute. It says the actions seriously and imminently endanger public health, safety and peace. The company sought to have the number of pickets limited to two at each entrance. "Harassment" The judge found that uncon- tradicted evidence showed that on several occasions there has been "definite, apparently un- warranted harassment, threats and abuse of plaintiff's em- ployes, patrons, customers and the general public" and that this was sufficient to warrant a temporary injunction from fur- ther behavior of that nature tiff's premises attacking, assaulting, threatening any of plaintiff's officers, agents or employes."
