A Gardena CA company with 120 employees told to stay in California

by Wall Street Journal Saturday, Nov. 25, 2000 at 5:22 PM

A injunction sought by National Relations Labor Board to proect 120 employees of Quadtrech. The minimum wage employees were members of the Communication Wokers of America.

From A-13 Wall Street Journal November 24, 2000

ALos Angeles (AP) -A jewelry making company that announced plans to move to Mexico the day after its workers certified union representation has been ordered by a federal judge to remain in the U.S.

U.. District Judge Carlos Moreno handed down a preliminary injunction Tuesday that prevents Quadtech Corp., Gardena Calif., which employes about 120 minimum wage assemblers, from moving to Tijuana.

The injunction, thought to be the first of its kind in the area and perhaps the nation, was sought by the National Labor Relations Board and will remain in effect until the board rules on dozens of charges filed by the union.

The most serious of the union's charges is that business-owner Vladimir Reil planned his move only to avoid dealing with the Communications Workers of america, the union that represents the workers.

"If we didn't go into the federal district court, they would have laid off employees and moved." NLRB attorney Julie Gutman told the Los Angeles Times in Wednesday's editions.

Mr. Reil's attorney, Gregory Kennedy, declined to discuss the injunction, which the company can appeal. In court briefs, Quadrtech attorneys argued that the move was motivated by "purely economic reasons."

Thank you to the staff of the Wall street Journal for including this on your November 24, 2000 edition.
