Strikes Prevented Minnesota has-it own method for i>ro- venting strikes. During tin 1 last, six years tho techn'upie wtis used lit)!» limes when strikes were planned, nnd in only L'5 cases did the workers actually stop their jobs. Under the State Labor Relations Act tho Governor has the power to delay a strike 30 days it' he believes that it will endanger the general welfare. After or- dorinir the postponement he aiipoints a i'act-fiud'nt^c ooin'mission of three to investigate company and union records, t«i.lk to both sides, and make recommendations for settling the dispute. The delaying, action in itself was enough in .39 cases, which were settled before tho commission began its investigation. A total of L''4 cases were settled on-the basis of the commission's rocom- meiKlntions. This success in helping labor and nian- agcment solve their own problems before strikes began was doubtless a factor in Governor ISclward .1. T.hye's winning of 1he Republican nomination for Senate.
