Term injunction Definition: A court order requiring a person, union, or firm to refrain from a particular activity. The general intent of an injunction is to prevent the action of one person that is very likely to harm another. Injunctions were commonly used during the more turbulent periods of the labor union movement, primarily by firms to prevent unions from striking. The Clayton made it more difficult for firms to use injunctions against unions.
