Before GEWIN, GOLDBERG and DYER, Circuit Judges.


The National Labor Relations Board here petitions for enforcement of a supplemental bargaining order issued against Conoco Plastics, a division of Continental Oil Company. After an evidentiary hearing conducted by a trial examiner,1  the Board found that Conoco had violated section 8(a) (1) and (5) of the National Labor Relations Act, 29 U.S.C.A. § 158(a) (1), (5). It ordered the company to cease and desist from the unfair labor practice, to bargain collectively with the union2  which the Board had certified as the exclusive bargaining representative of Conoco's over-the-road truckdrivers, and to post appropriate notices. 177 N.L.R.B. No. 124. Considering the record as a whole, we conclude that there was substantial evidence to support the Board's supplemental decision and bargaining order. See Home Town Foods, Inc. v. NLRB, 5 Cir. 1969, 416 F.2d 392, 394; NLRB v. Golden Age Beverage Co., 5 Cir. 1969, 415 F.2d 26, 29, 32. Therefore, the Board's supplemental order is
