Home builder nailed for firing worker, seeks injunction to stop union protest

Bloomfield Hills-based Pulte Homes, the country’s largest residential home builder, has gone to court to stop a union protest campaign that apparently is bringing the company to its electronic knees.

Pulte’s phones and e-mail accounts have been jammed, reports The Associated Press, by people upset by Pulte’s discharge of a worker, allegedly for wearing a union T-shirt.

In a court filing, Pulte has asked a federal judge

to order the Laborers’ International Union of North America to stop the campaign and take down a Web site criticizing the company.

Pulte’s national customer relations manager, Robert Schmittou, said he has received at least 750 e-mails and more than 100 voice mails that refer to the workers.

Get this: the Laborers’ International Union of North America doesn’t even represent Pulte workers.
