BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS TUESDAY, AUGUST 2C, 1947 Hartley Proposes New Labor Curbs Wont* Mora Teeth Put in Legislation By 80th Congress BV GtOEGE E. REEDY Jr. United Prrss SU(f Correspondent WASHINGTON, Aug.-28. (UP) — Choiiman Fred A. ..Hartley, Jr., of tho House Libav Committee said today on effort, tOf'ilrenglhtn the Tart-Hartley act "to give llie public real protection ^ugaliist, natlon«ltlp strjkes" m»y .be' irjade at the next session of .'• • '"The Taft-Hamey act was ncc- essjirlly a compromise and could not handle all .problems adequately." the New Jersey RspubHcan said In an! interview., "We definitely need something wjth teeth in it lo settle UiLs question of nationwide strikes." The'measure, as it finally liccnmo la'.y, contained a provision authorizing llie federal government lo se• cure 75-day court injunctions against nationwide strikes that ini- periL_j>tibllc . healtli .and safety. Hartley said this "does not KO far enough." * *AL the very best it only sUlls a al\liks off for TO days," he snid "True, there may b? some means ofexteiitiing the Injunctions for additional 75-day periods but even ithjs is doubtful." 'However, the major inadequacy cl the provision, ho said. Is that "it (Iocs not have enough tectli in it." Hartley said he would advocate the enactment ol the "monopolistic strike" section of the original Hartley bill. This measure, before it was modified by the Senate, would have classified a nationwide strike im- perilling public health and safety as a "monopolistic* practices strike." Unions engaging in such strikes would have been subject to three penalties. Stiff Penalties Proposed They could have been: (1) sued by the government under the antitrust laws; (2) sued by their employers for civil damages; and <3> taken off the list of accredited un- iops maintained by the National Labor Relations Board. ''Of course it will be extremely diTficult to get such a measure tly-ough Congress but I heiievc tlml an attempt will be made," Hartley said. "It is altogether likely that lift: pressure of events will force . suf.-h legislative action." Hartley also said he was studying the provisions ot-4he Taft-Hartley act lo determine - *irhether a strong- eij ban could, be" written" against mass picketing.' He said this prac- tii'e has caused widescale bitterness. "All over the country people are getting tired of being kept away from their work -by massed picket Urtes, usually staffed by oiitsic|?rs," he said. "They want something really strong done to stop it." ;Har(lcy cited the case of the strike at the Haddon Bait Co. in Dbwaginc and Clinton, Mich.
