The it pleasant news partly Cloudy Section one 2 sections vol. 92, no. 150 it. Pleasant Iowa Friday evening june 26, 1970 Price to cents these Days by John Chamberlain reforming the labor relations act the labor ironies in America mount. For one thing despite the fact that the government belongs to the people postmaster general Blount bowing to the Al Cion a George Meany would like to limit Post office employment to members of or. Meany a Union. The proposition is to keep americans from freely working for something they theoretically own. Too a second irony attends the re cent newspaper wage settlement in new York City. The new York times yields to nobody in its verbal stance against inflation yet when the Pinch came it signed one of the most inflationary labor con tracts in journalistic history. True enough it had Little option if it Van ted to go on publishing. But with new York City newspaper employees getting a 41 percent raise Over a three year period one Waits with apprehension to see How the Quot big town settlement will affect the papers out beyond the Hudson River. A horrendous statistic comes to mind sixty years ago there were some 700 cities with More than two competing newspapers today the list is Down to below forty five. Maybe automation which the unions prevent in new York will save the Day in the provinces. Too what to do about the Power of the unions to get raises that outrun productivity increases senator John Tower of Texas thinks he has one answer. He has introduced a Bill that would divest the National labor relations Board Norb of its jurisdiction in unfair labor practice cases in favor of restoring that jurisdiction to the Federal courts. This would amount to a return to the status quo As it was thirty five Jears ago. Hearings on the Tower labor Law Reform Bill s-3671 will begin before the Senate judiciary committee on july i with an impressive co sponsorship list that includes senators Ervin of North Carolina Bennett of Utah Dole of Kansas Coldwater and Fannin of Arizona and Thurmond of South Carolina. Too Tower insists that the Norb has gone out of its Way to show favouritism to labor in All too Many cases. Quot it has done so a he says Quot by deliberately subverting the principle of Iree employee Choice which the Law guarantees and demonstrating an obvious preference for enforced too a recent report by the Senate judiciary subcommittee on separation of the Powers tends to substantiate senator towers criticism. It has urged Congress to consider the a feasibility of substantive Reform of the National labor relations the Norb according to the subcommittee has consistently Quot thwarted the intent of Congress by Quot applying double standards and ignoring Plain legislative the consequences Are that a the Board has unreasonably emphasized the establishment and maintenance of collective bargaining and Strong unions to the exclusion of other statutory purposes which often involve the rights of individual the subcommittee report insists that the no Rby a general counsel who possesses an a reviewable Power to Issue or refuse to Issue complaints of unfair labor practices has often acted in an arbitrary manner individual rights have been frequently subordinated to the interests of the Union leaders even to the Point of preventing a free Choice of action by a majority of employees. Senator Tower is not anti Union but he thinks the Norb has unjustly penalized workers by denying them their rights of free speech under the first amendment. These Nat subcommittee notes that the Norb has ones idely tolerated scurrilous attacks on employers. Quot of All the regulatory agencies a says Tower arguing for giving the Federal courts the Power to Deal with unfair practice cases Quot the labor Board has established the worst reputation. It has ignored the intent of Congress. It has become a policy making body and has not hesitated to rewrite the Law to suit its own these Are harsh words they will surely precipitate one of the harsher congressional fights when the Tower Bill comes up for consideration next month.
