Beef Company Held in Contempt for Not Bargaining in Good Faith

A federal judge has held Noah’s Ark Processors, LLC (which does business as WR Reserve) in contempt for violating a May order requiring the business to bargain with United Food and Commercial Workers Union Local No. 293. The company has been using what the court called “petty gamesmanship” in the bargaining process, such as offering to bargain on days it knew union officials had other obligations.
