Amended bill in equity in Equity Case No. 2924: Donnelly Garment Company and Donnelly Garment Sales Company, Plaintiffs, vs. International Ladies' Garment Workers Union (ILGWU) and all members of said union as defendants in this class action. In this petition, the plaintiff asserts the ILGWU has been conspiring to force employees of the Donnelly Garment Company to join the defendant union. This bill in equity lists 39 statements from the plaintiff that outlines their case against the ILGWU and its members. The document then lists the requested injunctions. These include barring the ILGWU from picketing, protesting, or parading outside of the plaintiff's headquarters. The Donnelly Garment Company also prays the court to bar the defendant union from circulating false statements about the plaintiff and from attempting violent intimidation upon Donnelly Garment Company employees, amongst other requested injunctions.
