The ruling was made on an ap- peal by the Packard Motor Com- pany of Detroit from a National Labor Relations board decision. The company contended foremen were not employes within the mean- Ing of the Wagner labor relations act. Justice Jackson delivered the court's 5-to-4 decision. Justice Douglas wrote a dissent n which Chief Justice Vinson and (Justice Burton concurred. Justice Frankfurter also dissented from the majority although not concurring entirely in the views Douglas expressed for the minority. Jackson Explains Ruling For the majority, Jackson said: "The context of the (labor rela- tions act, we think, leaves no room for a construction of the section (Involved In this case) to deny the organizational privilege to em- ployes because they act in the in- terest of an employer. "Every employe from the very fact of employment in the master's business, is required to act in his interest." The question of whether foremen have the same status as other em- ployees under the fair labor stand- ards act is one that lias long been an issue in Industry. Among the new labor laws cur- rently being discussed in Congress are proposals to exempt foremen from the law.' The NRLB act guarantees workers the right to organize and. bargain collectively with their employers. Today's ruling was the Supreme court's first on the issue. The sr board has deferred decisions on other foremen's cases pending 'his decision. The ruling was the court's In- :crpretatlon of 'the intent of Con- gress on the question when it passed he Wagner labor relations act in .935. John L.
