Polk County judge rejects Deere’s request for injunction against Ankeny plant strikers


Des Moines Register: A Polk County judge today denied Deere & Co.’s request to restrict picketing of its Des Moines Works in Ankeny, saying Deere had failed to prove its contention that United Auto Workers members have frequently engaged in unlawful activity there since going on strike Oct. 14. District Judge Paul Scott held a hearing on the case Oct. 21, hearing from both sides and viewing Deere surveillance videos showing picketers marching in crosswalks as vehicles tried to enter or leave the plant. He wrote in his ruling that despite the videos, there was no evidence the strikers had broken any laws.
