Stuart Rothman. general counsel of the National Labor Relations Board, announced Monday he has authorized the Houston, Tex., NLRB office to issue a formal complaint based on charges brought by a Negro worker employed at the Hughes Tool Co., Houston.

Davis complained the company refused to consider his application for the company apprenticeship program to train for the better- paying job of machinist and toolmaker.
