The controversial leader of a big Laborers Union local, Marcelino (Matchy) Duarte, will not face a new election. The federal Department of Labor Tuesday conceded that it could not prove Duarte and other union officers received outside help in their election. It was a smashing victory for Duarte, 61. The Labor Department had originally demanded that all 11 officers of Local 652 stand for election again.

Marcelino (Matchy) Duarte renewed his control of Orange County's oldest Latino labor union Saturday when the 61-year-old former plaster worker won election to a sixth term as the organization's business director, according to union members. A public reading of the election results, however, sparked a brawl inside the Chestnut Street union hall, with members and candidates exchanging blows and throwing chairs.

Three hotel and restaurant union officials were overwhelmingly elected Saturday to lead the local that fired them last month. And the union official who led the revolt, 29-year-old organizer Angela Keefe, was ahead in a fairly close race for president. She led by 43 votes, 588 to 545. But perhaps as many as 49 of those votes have been contested. And, her opponent said, there may be enough mail ballots still lying uncounted in a union post office box to change the outcome.
