Local Union No. 277, International Brotherhood of Painters and Allied Trades (the Union) petitions for review of an order of the National Labor Relations Board (the Board) finding that the Union violated section 8(b)(1)(A) of the National Labor Relations Act (the NLRA), 29 U.S.C. § 158(b)(1)(A) (1976), by operating an exclusive hiring hall without regard to objective standards for referral. See Polis Wallcovering, 262 N.L.R.B. 1336, 262 NLRB No. 169, 1982-83 NLRB Dec. (CCH) para. 15,077 (1982). The Union also seeks review of the Board's order finding that it violated sections 8(b)(1)(A) and 8(b)(2) of the Act, 29 U.S.C. §§ 158(b)(1)(A) & (b)(2), by its failure to refer for employment Edward W. Pygatt.
Jennings V. Love petitions for review of the Board's order finding that the Union did not violate sections 8(b)(1)(A) and 8(b)(2) of the Act by its failure to refer him for employment. The Board resists this petition, and we granted the Union's motion to intervene in support of the Board. Love also seeks review of the Board's denial of his motion to reopen the record.
The Board has filed a cross-application for enforcement of its order against the Union with respect to the hiring hall and Pygatt. This court has jurisdiction under sections 10(e) and (f) of the Act, 29 U.S.C. §§ 160(e) & (f).
