TUESDAY, MARCH 29, Ifl4fl BLYTHKVIU.K (AnK.) COURIER NEWS ' PACK NINB IE NATION TODAY Congress Wrestles With Labor egislation and Move to Kill 'ait-Hartley Act Passed in '48 By James Mario* WASHINGTON, March 29. (/P)—Here's *i> ABO outline on the bill ch Congress will Uclcle In voting l new labor law. It's the one which the Truman administration wants passed. But it'» still only •. bill, not the new law. Congress may make big i»ngc» In the bill before letting It become law. ThU bill wipes out tn« 1947 Tall-Hartley Act and. with a lew aeUII- ons, bring* back the old Wagner Act of 1935. ThU was the main difference be-+ the Wa«ner act and T-K: 1. The Wagner act said a mail ould not be fired for Joining a mon; It said a boss had to bargain •1th his employes' union; and It set p the National Labor Relations loard (NLRB) to potect the em- iloyes' rights. Unions Seek Artwnlaje In short, the Wagner act put rc- trlcttoru on an employer but none t all on his employes. 2. T-H adopted that part of the Vaguer act but—then It put lumber of restrictions on unions, >lus new restrictions on employers, In short, T-H put restrictions on employers and unions, but put more estrlcttons on unions than thcj iver had before. The present bill—going hack to the Wagner act and wiping oui T-H—removes almost all restritv |tions on unions but leaves the olc Vagner act restrictions on an em POT example: i'-H binned union polltica. •spending: required union leaders t< Iswear they were not Communists I Ithey wanted the protection of th llaw for their unions; It require [unions to bargain In good faith wit Ian employer; and it outlawed th •closed shop. In a closed shop • employer can hire only unlo I members. The present bill wipe* out I those things. It requires a boss t I bargain in good faith with a unlo Ibut it doesn't require a union t I bargain in good faith with an (ployer And, further— The bill would nullify state law hlch banned the closed shop or other form of compulsory union leinuership. Would Expand Wagnrr Acl The bill would add things i the WuRiier act: Junsdlctional strikes —.' Th? bill utlaws them. So did T-H. The Vaguer act permitted them. (A jiu'i-sdictional strike is one in which a couple of unions quarrel with each oilier over rtolny a crr- ain Job. They have no quarrel with he employer but one of Ilicm trikes to make him do business with it.) Secondary boycotts _ The bill outlaws one kind. T-H outlawed them generally. The Wagner act jermiUed them. A secondary boycott means a union, having a dispute wllh a company, tries to slop other companies from doing business with that one. The present bill doesn't bar boycotts except when they arc an attempt to force an employer, <,vho already had a contract with another union, to do with the union causing the boycott. National emergency strikes— The bil: has no outright ban on a union's striking, even if it endangers the general welfare. But it, would let the President ask that there be no strike for 30 dnys while he set up a board to investigate the dispute. (The Wagner act permitted any kind of strike, But T-H could prevent n national emergency strike for 80 days by giving the govern- Hearing Delayed. For Wisconsin Murder Suspect MILWAUKEE, March W.
