Something Doin' In South
SOUTHWESTERN UBOR
MEETS IN HOUSTON, TEX.
Houston, Texas—A conference
of orfuiieri for the American
Federation of Labor and officer*
of the State Federation* of La
bor of Texas. Oklahoma, Arkan
sas, Arizona and New Mexico was
held in Houston, February 5 and
6.
In attendance at the South
western conference were National
Director Joseph D. Keenan of
Labor’s League for Political Ed
cation, Harry E. O’Reilly, Na
tional Director of Organisation
for the American Federation of
Labor, George L. Googe, Vice
President, Printing Pressmen’s*
Assistants’ Union and J. L.
Rhodes.. Southern Director of
Organization, together with all
staff representatives in the above
named states and Presidents and
Secretaries of the Federations of
Labor. I
The Conference gave special
consideration to the organising
program in the five states of the
Southwestern territory and the
problems of affiliation and co
ordination of local union activi
ties with the .State Federations
of Labor and political activity.
A major item of consideration
was the importation of foreign
labor to the Western territory,
where farmers and those employ
ing cheap labor have brought
to the territory Mexican {mi
grants, in such large numbers,
and that they are filtering from
farms to the industrial work. The
so-called "wet-backs," a name ap
plied to those who swim in the
Rio Grande River, are direct com
petitors of all labor in that they
hide out in the plants and in the
factories and work for cheap
wages, and are for the most part,
afraid to join a union because
of fear of being deported. Sec
retary Harry Acre man of the
Texas Federation of Labor was
requested to compound a special
report on the imigration prob
lems of the Southwest and relay
same to the National Director of
Organisation, asking assistance
in the regulation of importation
of this type of labor.
Methods of organising held top
place in the discussions and or
ganizers were advised that they
should stand ready to assist all
International Unions in their or
ganising drives and to correlate
activities of the Central Bodies
and State Federations of Labor
in support of the International
Unions.
Special consideration was given
to the problems of labor legisla
tion in the Southwestern states.
Director Joseph D. Keenan of
Labor’s League for Political Ed
cation advised the Conference -that
during years when there was no
national election was a real op
portunity for the labor movement
to prepare its political machinery
down to the so-called grass roots
level, involving the appointment
and reaction of workable political
organisations with representatives
in each congressional district and
voting precinct throughout the
country.
TAFT-HAHTLEY REPEAL
(Coatiased From Pag* 1)
Board, whose law firm now rep
resents the International Typo
graphical Union and other labor
organisations.
Van Arkel charged that the
“guarantees of the Wagner Act
are interred in the Taft-Hartley
Act.'* Instead of encouraging
collective bargaining, the Taft
Hartley Act “positively discour
aged it," he said. He charged
that many employers have been
forced to circumvent the closed
shop ban in the law in order to
keep their unionised working
forec on the Job, because union
men will refuse to work beside
non-union men and the law places
a compulsion upon employers to
hire non-union workers.
Stanley W. Oliver, president of
the International Federation of
Technical Engineers, Architects
and Draftsmen (AFL), testified
that employer groups who wish
to weaken and divide unions of
engineering employes were given
aid and comfort by the Taft
Hartley Act. He urged repeal of
the law and re-enactment of the
Wagner Act.
Calm but devastating attacks
against the Taft-Hartley Act
were launched by William Leiser
son, former member of the Na
tional Labor Relations Board, and
Prof. Nathan P. Feinainger both
acknowledged experts in labor
