This cause came on to be heard on a petition for review of an order of the National Labor Relations Board and was argued by counsel. On consideration of the foregoing, and for the reasons set forth in the attached memorandum, it is


Ordered and Adjudged by this Court that the aforesaid petition for review is denied and it is


Further Ordered that the cross-application for enforcement of the order of the National Labor Relations Board is granted.



The Board properly refused to give effect to the aborted settlement agreements between the charging parties and the respondent.


A finding of a section 8(b)(1)(A) violation does not require actual proof of intent to influence the exercise of section 7 rights. The Board's inferences concerning the "natural foreseeable consequences of the conduct" were adequately supported by the record. See Lummus Co. v. NLRB, 339 F.2d 728, 734 (D.C.Cir.1964). See also Teamsters Local 357 v. NLRB, 365 U.S. 667, 675 (1961); Radio Officers' Union v. NLRB, 347 U.S. 17, 51 (1954).


Accordingly, the petition for review is denied and the cross-application for enforcement is granted.
