Annotate this Case
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit - 361 F.2d 310 (9th Cir. 1966) April 26, 1966

Sweeney, Irwin, Cozy & Foye, Los Angeles, Cal., for petitioners.

Arnold Ordman, Gen. Counsel, Dominick L. Manoli, Associate Gen. Counsel, Marcel Mallet-Prevost, Asst. Gen. Counsel, Warren M. Davison, Martin R. Ganzglass, Attys., N. L. R. B., Washington, D. C., for respondent.

Before MERRILL and BROWNING, Circuit Judges, and THOMPSON, District Judge.


Upon an examination of the whole record we conclude that there was substantial evidence from which the Board could infer that the activities leading to the employee's discharge were engaged in with or on behalf of other employees, and not solely by and on behalf of the discharged employee himself, and thus were "concerted activities for the purpose of * * mutual aid or protection" within the meaning of section 7 of the National Labor Relations Act, protected by section 8 (a) (1) of the Act.

The order of the Board will be enforced.
