Many kosher-observant Jews in the New York area are familiar with the light comestibles prepared by the century-old Flaum Appetizing Corporation, either for their kitchen tables or the Saturday afternoon shalah shudus (third meal) gatherings at their local synagogues.

What they may be gradually learning about, as they sit down to Flaum’s egg salad, matjes herring or baba ganoush, is the long-simmering labor dispute pitting the East Williamsburg company’s owners against former workers, a dispute that has in recent months bubbled hotly to the surface.
