Perhaps he isn't even the toughest. Burly John L Lewli, president of the United Mine Workers, is a contender. Lewis has bullied and bulldoced his iBrousjh a career o! absolute in bis bit u-iion, ruthlessly suppressing every hint of opposition. Lately he has signed up about new mem- bers. He walked to Johnson the other day, shook his big finger under John- son's noae and told the NRA admin- slrator- Section Sev en-A Is labor tot out of the recovery act. You're not going to whittle It away1" The Labor Advisory Board was sud- denly pro-Fine itself a whole bunch of tough babies The group had son on the spot after his public prom- ise to "interpret" the act's labor clause In an attempt to clarify the open and closed shop cortroversy. Remembering Johnson's past open shop the labor meu figured the "Interpretation" wouldn't do their cause much good They felt it might help the automobile and coal Industries get an open shop expression In their codes Johnson anted to why they felt that way. JohHMo Prwnised President Green ot the A. r of L. said he realized Johnson was under much pressure from manufacturers. "I'm full of Johnson ex- claimed. "Get from every- body. I'm a very stubborn fellow." But be promised that he would not say anything that would affect labor's position under the recovery act In any way. (One of his pressures was the threat by Lewis of a national coal strike) Terms Are Defined The interpretation finally issued jointly by Johnson and Chief Counsel Donald Richberg formally erased the terms "open shop" and "closed shop" from the NRA official vocabulary. But the it was and will to be defined A "closed shop" is a place where only union men are hired An "open shop" tech- nioally is a place where anyone may be hired. Employers argue that an open shop them the privilege of hiring cap- able men on merit, regardless of wheth- er they have union membership. But labor says it aways works out to that open shop employers discharge un- ion workers. That prevents the build- ing up of a union in the plant. NBA Mediator onlv the Johnson-ftlchberg document, which nearly everyone has overlooked, is the NRA's promise, in cases where question arises M to whether employes represented by representatives of their own choosing, to offer an Impartial investigation, and if necessary a secret ballot. That means the NRA will act on legitimate complaints that labor isn't getting its rights as guaranteed by the act. Steel and some other industries are likely to be hejd up in the light of public opinion as refusing to accept the offer of investigation. The National Labor Board already has settled two strikes by threatening employers with a public statement to the effect that workers har accepted and the employer had refused a settlement through a fair, NRA-super- rised secret election. Richberg, who has been something of a tough baby himself during the open shop controversy, wrote most of the "interpretation." (Copyright, ms, MSA Service, Inc) Ministerial Meeting.
