A. A preliminary injunction or temporary restraining order shall not be granted between employer and employee, or between employees, or between persons employed and persons seeking employment, involving or arising from a dispute concerning terms or conditions of employment, unless necessary to prevent irreparable injury to property or to a property right of the party making the application and when there is no adequate remedy at law for the injury. The property or property right shall be described with particularity in the application.

Terms Used In Arizona Laws 12-1808

  • Injunction: An order of the court prohibiting (or compelling) the performance of a specific act to prevent irreparable damage or injury.
  • Person: includes a corporation, company, partnership, firm, association or society, as well as a natural person. See Arizona Laws 1-215
  • Property: includes both real and personal property. See Arizona Laws 1-215
  • Temporary restraining order: Prohibits a person from an action that is likely to cause irreparable harm. This differs from an injunction in that it may be granted immediately, without notice to the opposing party, and without a hearing. It is intended to last only until a hearing can be held.

B. The preliminary injunction or temporary restraining order as provided for in subsection A shall not prohibit any person from:

1. Terminating any relation of employment, or from ceasing to perform any work or labor, or from recommending, advising, or persuading others by peaceful means so to do.

2. Attending at or near a house or place where any person resides or works, or carries on business, or happens to be, for the purpose of peacefully obtaining or communicating information, or of peacefully persuading any person to work or to abstain from working.

3. Ceasing to patronize or to employ any party to such dispute or from recommending, advising, or persuading others by peaceful means to do so.

4. Paying or giving to or withholding from any person engaged in such dispute any strike benefits or other monies or things of value.

5. Peaceably assembling at any place in a lawful manner and for lawful purposes.

6. Doing any act or thing which might lawfully be done in the absence of such dispute by any party thereto.
