Division chairpersons of state telephone union sought to enjoin referendum presented to members of union on question of whether union should affiliate with national communications union. Chairpersons moved for temporary and permanent injunction. The District Court, Simmons, J., held that: (1) record did not support contention that matters relative to referendum were not fully disclosed by state union, and (2) state union was not required to act on chairpersons' petitions urging that state union conduct affiliation referendum by secret mail ballot and that referendum ballot permit members to choose between affiliation with rival national unions. Motion denied and case dismissed with prejudice.
