WASHINGTON (Feb. 20)—A National Labor Relations Board panel has upheld an earlier NLRB decision ordering Titan International Inc. to stop videotaping striking employees who were handbilling and participating in other union-related activities outside the firm´s Quincy, Ill., wheel plant. The three-member panel affirmed a July 31, 2000, ruling by an NLRB administrative law judge saying Titan could not lawfully videotape United Steelworkers of America members who were passing out information to the wheel plant´s employees, who are non-union. USWA Local 164 in Des Moines, Iowa, has been striking at the company´s tire plant there since May 1998. The company has the right to appeal the decision to the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.
