FORCED BY STRIKES
WASHINGTON. A fair-trade-practices
bill for labor (Richberg)
is supposed to lie around congress
until the coming expected wave of
union strikes generates an irresisti
ble demand for its adoption then it,
or something like it, is passed. This,
indeed, is the sotto voce program.
Such delay may sound like a back
end way to handle an expected na
tional crisis, be
cause the bill pro
poses to avert the
strikes by providing
machinery for just
settlements, not on
ly in the public in
terest, but in the
of the unions. Yet
you can see what is
beginning to happen
to the legislation in
the probable ab
sence of Alabama's !
Senator Lister Hill from the list of
This was supposed to be a four
senator bill, introduced by two Dem
ocrats and two Republicans; in fact, '
the same or.es who sponsored the J
declaration of senatorial peace
priricir'es, Ball. Burton, Hatch and
Hill. But on this bill. Hill says he
was "just too busy" to fill out the
r:H2 leadership, so it became B2H1. .
M t people think the real reason is
thr.t the CIO was instrumental in
li.'.'.'s recent re-election. j
The "too busy" treatment is like
ly to be applied generally to the pro
posal, because nothing in its an
nn'.:n?cd purposes can very well be
openly opposed by the unions, or
Basically, the bill would re- j
quire the arbitrary unions to j
moderate their "public - be- J
damned" policy. Disruptions of
public service, such as in the I
Fifth avenue bus slowdown in I
New York recently, where
drivers just decided to run
hn-r or so late, as well as st1"
i.: public utilities, milk ('
eries, etc., would be pre'
by judicial eompul'-orv -tion.
This is in the sound interest of the
unions, because all now are suffer
ing from the conspicuous public-be-damr.d
policy of a few unions.
The bill was not written by manu
facturers or employers, but by an
old union lawyer, Donald Richberg,
who composed the most successful
labor law ever enacted, the Rail
way Labor act. Under it the rail
way brotherhoods have prospered
better than other labor unions, and
The senatorial sponsors are not
anti-labor people either, but some
what left-leaning. The way they de
scribed their general purposes is
ONE BOARD PLAN
They would break up the competi
tive handling of labor through vari
ous government agencies now, and
put all conciliation and mediation
activities in a new five-man board.
1 A second board of three would
handle complaints of unfair prac- 1
tlces by labor or employer, not jusl
labor alone, as now. ;
The Wagner act would be fur- i
ther amended to make unions
I democratic and to limit the
' closed shop to places where the
' onion controls at least 75 per i
: cent of the workers and is open
: to all members, and thus is not j
In itself a closed shop handing
employment down from genera
tion to generation in its own
ranks, or otherwise limiting
Further logical limitations would
cut down the number of captious
strikes now expanding in the coun
Labor could stop all the national
opposition arising against it in many
tates where laws or constitutional
changes are being advocated or
enacted, to protect public interest
gainst the unions, if they would take
the mild and reasonable purposes of
this bill, or alter them to suit the
situation. If they would say the
word to senators like Hill, the bill
would go through in a minute.
Unfortunately too many labor
leaders now are shortsighted reac
tionaries who want to defend the
Status quo and prevent any reform
pf existing unsatisfactory conditions. .
So it is quite possible congress
will not only wait until the strike
horse runs away but the whole la- 1
bor barn burns down, before taking '
up this key to lock the door.
' Excessive use of power always
kills itself by its own excesses. His
tory is bulging with undeviating ex
amples. Latest one is Hitler, who
contrived his own defeat by carry
ing his power to lengths which
caused an overwhelming opposition
to be aroused. Statesmen, labor
leaders or other humans seem un
able to realize that power lasts
?nly ai long as it ia wisely used.
