Dvbkk WASHINGTON (AP) - Forty years after passage of the landmark National Labor Relations Act. labor and management find it powerful but still controversial Labor would like to see its coverage extended to public employes and farm workers, while some business groups would like to see the law amended to curb union strength. Nonetheless, the law, known as the Wagner Act when it was signed July 5,1935, by President Franklin D. Roosevelt, has served as an important tool in bringing order to collective bargaining for the nation's 23 million organized workers. "The act has stood the test o* time," declared Chairman Betty Murphy of the National Labor Relations Board in a statement Saturday noting the law's 40th anniversary. "It has bought an evolution of labor relations from sitdown strikes and violence to thoughtful bargaining and productive compromise." The nation's basic labor law, it guarantees the right of workers to organize and to bargain collectively with their employers. It was amended in 1947 by the Taft- Hartley Act to prohibit certain kinds of strikes and union tactics, and again in 1959 by the Landrum-Griffin Act which placed further restrictions on labor's activities AFL-C10 President George Meany called the law "the keystone of industrial democracy" but said its coverage should be expanded. "The rights guaranteed by the NLRA have not yet been extended to all who work for a living: particularly farm workers and the many others who urgently need this protection," he said. Among these groups are state, county and municipal employes whose unions are currently mounting a drive in Congress for legislation to guarantee them collective bargaining rights.
