Midland Steel Products Co. v. International Union, United Automobile, Aerospace and Agricultural Implement Workers of America, Local 486
Ohio Supreme Court
61 Ohio St. 3d 121, 573 N.E.2d 98 (1991)
A court issued an injunction prohibiting picketing outside Midland Steel Products Co.’s (plaintiff) plant that specifically mentioned certain union members. The temporary restraining order was distributed to other members and union leadership, delivered to the union hall, posted, and a newspaper reported on the order. Other union members (defendants) not named in the injunction were held in criminal contempt for violating the order’s limit of two pickets per plant entrance. The unnamed union members appealed, claiming that they did not know the contents of the temporary restraining order.
