Employer’s unilateral discontinuance of its practice in giving its employees Christmas turkeys did not violate its duty to bargain, in that first collective bargaining agreement between employer and the union did not obligate employer to give the Christmas turkeys, and negotiations leading up to the second contract indicated union abandonment of any attempt to make giving of the turkeys obligatory.
