Such a change, he said, ivould remove from the board its udicial function, leaving it in - the ro3e of investigator and prosecutor. 2. Permit either employes or.em- ployers to petif.ion for an election to determine the collective bargaining representative; a secret ballot within 20 days after receipt of the petition ivculd be mandatory. . Grant to employers the right to aargain collectively "free from threat, intimidation, restraint or coercion from any source." The aresent act prohibits employers from engaging in such unfair labor prac- ces. 4. Define as "unfair labor practice" an act of a labor organization or any officer, agent or employe o the organization, to threaten or in- timidatc-workers to violate a civil or criminal law in the course of a dispute, to strike without ah affirmative vote of a majority ot employes in an appropriate unit, to interfere with th( orderly conduct of an employer': business, or lo strike in violation o; a valid contract or agreement. 5. Require labor organizations to file information regarding their groups, including the names of a] officers with a certification that each is an American citizen. The Labo Board would not be allowed to certify as collective bargaining agent any union not complying. i. Grant employers the right "to counsel or advise his employes orally or in writing" about the Wagner Act 7. Substitute "remedial severanci pay" for the practice of "reinstate ment of employes against the will o trie employer." Burke described compulsory reinstatement of "trou ble-making employes" as "vexatious' to employers, contending that thi: proposal would force the "accuser t come into court with clean hands." Proposed changes in the election machinery of the board, Burke said were based on complaints "commonly made Uiat the board refuses to cal an election until it is assured b; Committee, of Industrial Organizations leaders that they are in control." Thn board has been accused by Burke jnd the AFL of favoring the CIO, which opposes any change in the act. Burke would "protect the rights o craft unions" by making it impossibl ;l to impose upon employes by tlv board . . . representatives selected by a minority of workers in a given unit." The preamble to the Wagner Ac would be changed to read that it purpose was "to end industrial strif and unrest, however caused," in con trast to the present reading which, h contended, assumes that employer only are to blame for labor dls turbances. · With Mrs. John Dawson.
