Two dozen people picketed Kyowa America Corp. at noon Wednesday to protest the firing of two union activists in the midst of an organizing campaign. The company said the two men were fired Friday for physically harassing other workers in a dispute that had nothing to with the union. The United Electrical, Radio and Machine Workers union has been trying to organize 300 workers at the company's Costa Mesa and Irvine factories for four months.

Representatives of United Electrical, Radio and Machine Workers Union Local 1421 picketed a bottle-making company Tuesday to protest the firing of the union's chief steward at the plant. Members of several other unions in Orange County also participated in the demonstration. Marianne Hart, 45, said she was fired Dec. 29 by officials of Sonoco Products because she had protested excessive overtime and a requirement that employees attend company meetings not held on company time.

Registered nurses at Long Beach Memorial Hospital narrowly rebuffed unionization this week, while union drives at three smaller area hospitals were successful. The slim margin in the Long Beach vote, which was 591-581, was a stunning setback for the California Nurses Assn., the fastest-growing nurses union in the state. CNA Director Rose Ann DeMoro claimed that the hospital illegally pressured nurses. She said the union would appeal the results to the National Labor Relations Board.

Two weeks into their strike, about 200 California Acrylic Industries employees and supporters marched along Mission Boulevard to show unity in a push for union representation and better working conditions. Chanting "Si, se puede!" (it can be done), the Cal-Spas workers marched peacefully on Wednesday and vowed to stay off the job until the company withdraws charges it has filed against the United Electrical Workers union, which is trying to represent the workers.

Overruling the National Labor Relations Board, a federal appeals court has denied reinstatement to 200 striking workers whose employer, a Pomona spa manufacturer, illegally videotaped a union meeting. The U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ruling was unusual because it rejected the board's finding that the labor law violation was one cause of the strike.
