D A Y A T C A P I T A L A S I N T E R P R E T E D BY DAVID LAWRENCE Continued from Page Four, board to favor any particular lorm ot labor organization, merely stipu- ating that, for the purpose of hold- ng elections, the board shall de- crmine what the "appropriate unit or collective bargaining" shall be, whether a whole plant or special departments or craHs or other groups vithin a big industrial operation. Certainly, the Wagner law today ·cquircs the board to (Ind out what s and wb'at is not n "bona fldc labor organization" and presumably this discretionary or fact-finding power would continue to be lodged in the oard of the "council's recommenda- lons were adopted. To ascertain what is a "bona fide" labor organization, the board now takes testimony tmd evidence bearing on "whether an employer seeks by indirect means to influence the action of any of his employes, whether the employer favors one group or employes as against another, whether the company pays the expenses of a union of its own choosing rather than a union really wanted by a majority of the workers in a given unit. The Supreme Court of the United States, in various decisions, has drawn a distinction between bona fide labor organizations and those which are the tools or instruments of employer action. The Wagner law provides for business and industry generally in this respect a means of ascertaining whether an organization is "bona fide" just as the National Mediation Act has for years determined the same point with respect to labor organizations on the Nation's transportation systems. There is much, of course, to be said on the point of stabilizing labor relations by law and preventing unnecessary interruptions to production through the abuse of the right to strike. But any such amendments to existing law will coinc with greater case and will be compelled by public opinion and accepted by labor groups themselves only when business men, In their proposals to amcnc the National Labor Relations Act. do not make suggestions that could, if embodied in actual amendments to the law, be used to frustrate the basic purposes of the act. These purposes are to guarantee and assure workmen of absolutely no interference or restraint against them by employers when workers seek to choose their own form of organization or bargaining agents.
