For several decades, injunctive relief under Section 10(i) of the National Labor Relations Act remained an extraordinary equitable remedy. In remarks to a Hofstra University conference commemorating the 100th birthday of Babe Ruth, William Gould IV urged that baseball serves as a "mirror image" of other developments in society at large. On Certainly, the current Board views the injunctive provisions of Section 10 as one of its most critical tools under the Act. Indeed, General Counsel has made the increased utilization of Section 10(i) injunctive proceedings a "cornerstone of his administration of the Act." It is equally certain that the number of cases authorized for appropriate interim relief will continue to raise. Thus, it is imperative for today's management attorney to understand the nuances involved in this expanding area. After all, the Board is currently batting .820 against employers in Section 10(i) proceedings.
