(UP) — The National Labor Relations Board said the Federal District Court of Southern New York todny issued a temporary restraining otdcr forbidding General Motors Corp lo put into ftlf&ct a company-sponsored insurance plan, It said the order was issued by Judge John Bright, who ordered the firm to withhold the Insurance plan Indefinitely.

Denham told the court that General Motors had refused to bargain with the CIO united auto workers on the details of the insurance plan. He said the company had agreed a year flgo to discussion and negotiation on the plan. "General Motors, unless restrained, will install the new insurance workers ! plan on Feb. 1, unilaterally and in violation of its duty to bargain collectively concerning such matters with the 'union," Denham'& request for ihe order said.'

This vfnz life first time Denham had asked B federal court to issue a restraining order or an injunction aysinst an employer under the Tart-Hartley net. Denhnm said that If General Molors is allowed to put the insurance plati into effect In its 100 plants it will "seriously threaten the effectiveness of, and may render altogether futile, any remedy ultimately ordered by the board."
