Dear Kalman:

We have just been informed by the Legal Services Staff Association (District 65/UAW) that its striking members will picket the Civil Courts in Brooklyn, Bronx and Manhattan tomorrow, April 2, 1991, between 8:30a.m. and 10:30 a.m.

Please be advised that while our members will report for work tomorrow and perform their usual tasks, they will not cross that picket line, in reliance on their rights pursuant to Section 7 of the National Labor Relations Act, unless they are actually engaged in trial.

Our members will make every effort to schedule their appearances at hours other than those affected by the picket line. Nonetheless, if management intends to appear on a case during the picket hours, our members will explain the relevant facts and issues of the case to supervisors for that purpose .
