Federal Judges Granted More Power in Labor Dispute Cases


Federal Judges Granted More Power in Labor Dispute Cases WASHINGTON - The U.S. Supreme Court Monday gave federal judges more power to decide lawsuits stemming from labor disputes.

Justice John Paul Stevens, writing for the court, said the federal Labor Relations Management Act gives judges authority to rule in such cases unless the collective bargaining agreement between a union and management expressly forbids it. Arthur Groves was fired by Ring Screw Works for allegedly excessive unexcused absences from work. Bobby Evans was dismissed for allegedly falsifying company records. Both men denied the charges but lost grievance complaints against the company. They then sued the firm for firing them without due cause in violation of the Labor Relations Management Act.

Unocal Discovers Natural Gas in Gulf of Mexico LOS ANGELES - Unocal Exploration Corp. has discovered natural gas in a deep pool test at West Cameron Block 196 in the Gulf of Mexico offshore Louisiana. The OCS-G 5292 No. A-4 well was tested in a middle Miocene zone between depths of 14,522 and 14,576 feet. It produced 11.3 million cubic feet of gas and 212 barrels of condensate per day through a 13/64-inch choke at a flowing tubing pressure of 11,250 pounds per square inch. Two other middle Miocene zones remain to be tested.

The deep pool exploration well was drilled from a platform installed earlier this year over two wells which had been drilled into a shallower pool where a discovery was made in 1988. Production is expected to begin sometime this month.
