United States Court of Appeals Third Circuit.

June 12, 1957.

Abraham E. Freedman, Philadelphia, Pa., for appellants.

Charles A. Wolfe, Philadelphia, Pa., for appellees.

Before BIGGS, Chief Judge, and GOODRICH and KALODNER, Circuit Judges.

PER CURIAM.

1

An injunction, at all four numbers as set out above, has been filed with this opinion in aid of our appellate jurisdiction, 28 U.S.C. 1251, to end that the relations of the parties to the suits, those of the International Union of Operating Engineers, those of Local Union 542 and its Branches, 542A, 542B, and 542C, of the International Union of Operating Engineers, and those of the Members of Local Union 542, shall be maintained in statu quo pending disposition of the appeals. The order filed with this opinion prohibits any disturbance in the relationships referred to. Our order does not disturb the present trusteeship of Local Union 542 and of its Branches inaugurated by William E. Maloney as representative of the International Union of Operating Engineers and it is our intention that this trusteeship shall continue in the future as in the past until further order of this court.

2

It will be observed that we have required security from both the appellants and the appellees for the faithful performance of the terms of the order. This seems just since injunctions and prohibitions are laid upon both sides. A court of equity may require such security to be given.
