Judge limits strikers’ conduct at Deere plant in Iowa
A judge on Wednesday issued a temporary restraining order that details how picketing workers at the Deere & Co. plant in Davenport, Iowa, must conduct themselves.
In seeking the injunction Wednesday, Deere officials alleged that striking workers had disrupted access to the Davenport Works plant and put others at risk.
District Court Judge Marlita Greve ordered the union to allow only four picketers at a time near the gates of the plant. The order also banned the use of chairs and barrel fires, and prohibited picketers from harassing or intimidating people entering and leaving the plant, the Quad-City Times reported.
