United Steelworkers of America, Local No. 1330 v. United States Steel Corp.
United States District Court for the Northern District of Ohio
492 F. Supp. 1 (1980)
Throughout the late 1970s, it became increasingly clear that foreign competition was driving down the profitability of United States Steel (company) (defendant). In January 1978, the company’s chairman of the board publicly stated that at some point the Youngstown, Ohio steel plant’s lost profitability would inevitably force the company to shut it down. The next day, and on several occasions thereafter, the Youngstown plant’s manager told his employees, who were members of the United Steelworkers of America, Local 1330 (union) (plaintiff), that the best thing they could do to keep their jobs was to work hard enough to ensure the plant’s ongoing profitability. The union petitioned the federal district court for injunctive relief when, in March 1980, the company announced its intent to close the Youngstown plant. The federal district court issued a temporary injunction and then considered the union’s petition on its merits.
