Mori v. Boilermakers, 454 U.S. 1301 (1981)
Mori v. Boilermakers
No. A-417 (81-847)
Decided November 23, 1981
454 U.S. 1301
An application to stay the Court of Appeals' mandate -- which upheld an international union's adoption, by nonsecret ballot of the delegates at a union convention, of a new dues structure applicable to a certain group of members, notwithstanding the provisions of § 101(a)(3)(A) of the Labor-Management Reporting and Disclosure Act of 1959 requiring a secret ballot by local members to increase rates of dues -- is granted until disposition of applicants' petition for certiorari. There is a strong probability that four Justices of this Court will vote to grant the petition for certiorari; applicants have a reasonable probability of success on the merits; and the balance of equities weighs heavily in their favor.
