ng historic ground thc Na ional Labor Relations Board fountl a union guilty of racial liscriminatioi Thursday and tripped it of its certification In a broad opinion with pos siblenational impact the ma jority decision said whenever a union causes discrimination based on race it has com miltcd an unfair labor prac tice according to the rule The action the first of its kind by thc NLRB was against thc Independent Metal Workers Union which main tained separate tocals for white and Negro members at Hughes Tool Co in Houston Tex The case involved the com plaint of a member of the Ne gro local whose application f o an apprenticeship avail able only to white members was rejected by the union Thc fivemember boards decision to revoke certification on grounds of illegal coercion was unanimous although two members gave more limited reasons for their finding The minority said Congress never intended the National Labor Relations Act to deal with racial discrimination ex cept w hen based on union membership as in this case The majority opinion wasby members Boyd Leedom Ger ald A Brown and Howard Jenkins Jr Chairman Frank W McCulloch and member John H Fanning wrote the minority view The majority said the un ions refusal to process ihc grievance of the Negro mem ber Ivory Davis because of his race amounted to refusal to bargain collectively with the employer The revocation of the un
