YOUR JOB AND THE LAW
COLORADO PICKETING BAN UNCONSTITUTIONAL
That section of the Colorado labor law which forbids unions to picket
establishments, employees of which are on strike, has been declared uncon
stitutional by Colorado District Court. This decision was based on the fact
that restrictions on peaceful picketing for any reason are unconstitutional and
in violation of the free speech clauses of the constitution.
Some of our readers may have wondered what happens when an employer
refuses to bargain after he is ordered to do so either by the Stab? LRB or the
NLRB. The usual procedure is for the LRB to get a court order ordering the
employer to comply. If he still refuses then he is in contempt of court.
In New York City recently that contempt cost two sandwich shop owners
$250 each plus $250 for the controlling corporation or $750 in all. And they
still have to go back and bargain with the union.
Average Wage Creeps Up In June
