KUIDAY, AUGUST 22, 1!M7 Taft-Hartley Law Goes Into Force Labor-Management Relations Measure Will Be Enforced BY CIIAKLKS II. 11KKKOI I) (t'nited Press Stuff Correspondent) WASHINGT1N, Aug. 22. (UP) — A new era In labor-management relations was ushered in at midnight when the Tart-Hartley law became fully effective. At that-hour, tight restrictions were clamped on trade unions representing 15.000,000 workers by the first sweeping union control law 2vcr passed by Congress. Since its passage June 23 over President Truman's veto, the labar law has iMconie potentially otic of the hottest political issues of the forthcoming 1948 election campaign. Labor unions and some Democrats have attacked It as a "slave labor" law. Management generally has hailed It as correcting the "abuses" of the Wagner Act which lias governed labor-management relations for the past 12 ycnis. Many of the Tart-Hartley law's provisions arc headed for test cases in the federal courts. The National Labor Delations Board, Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service and the Labor Department were operating today under the provisions of the new law. Some provisions have been in effect since the law was passed. These made unions liable to damage suits for bread) of contract, restricted union health and welfare funds limited union political contributions and expenditures and gave the President power to issue injunctions in national emergency strikes. The remaining sections effective last midnight forbid jiirisdictional -strikes, boycotts and strikes for recognition; ba nthc closed shop: and prohibit union "fcatherbedding" v;ork rules, excessive initiation fees and expulsion of members for any renson except non-payment of dues Furthermore, the government will not conduct unio nelections or hear complaints of unfair labor practices against employers unless petitioning unions submit required financial data to the Labor Department, and unless their officers file noncommunist affidavits with NLRH. Robert N. Denbain, new NLRB general counsel, has announced that 3,000 pending cases will be dismissed unless the unions involved file the necessary financial and Communist affidavits within 20 days of being notified by his office. Under the new law, Denham—as general counsel—becomes the final authority on what cases will be presented to the NLRB. The board, enlarged from three to five members, will function solely as a labor court, judging sucli cases as the general counsel chooses to prosecute. BLYTHEVILLK (ARK.)
