On July 29, 2016, Delphi Golf, Inc. and the union entered a collective bargaining agreement.
The majority of the companys employees covered by the agreement had not designated the
union as their collective-bargaining representative. The agreement contains a union-security
clause requiring employees who are members in good standing of the union to maintain their
membership in good standing and all other employees to become members of the union on or
before the 31st day following the effective date of the agreement or the date of their hire. The
union instructed Delphi Golf, Inc. not to employ three servers for restaurant positions in the
company because the servers were not members of the union. The company is an employer
within the meaning of Section 2(2) of the act engaged in commerce within the meaning of
Section 2(6) and (7) of the act.
