Ratio: Anti-injunction provisions of section 4(a) of the Norris Laguardia Act don't apply to protect employers.
So what you're saying is that lockouts are always illegal in anything that could be characterized as a "labor dispute," and that "labor dispute" means anything ranging from negotiations with a union to just plain breaking your existing agreement with your people.

When, pray tell, is a lockout legal, then?
