Keith .. late this afternoon Rubatex served its striking union members with a restraining order.
It bans them from using threats, force or violence -- and from obstructing roads -- while they're picketing.
It comes on a day when the company says the union is threating others' safety.
And it's evidence that as this strike lasts longer ... tempers are getting much shorter.
