Of Companies Fleeing To
Escape Union Contract
New York City (ILNS)—Supreme
Court Justice Philip J. McCook has
ordered two affiliated dress concerns
to move their machinery back to New
York, take back the union workers
they fired, and pay damages which
these workers suffered by loss of
wages. And, sweeping as was the
decision in itself, it became more so
because Justice McCook laid down the
rule that contracts like the one be
tween the union and the dress con
cerns must be enforced to fill up the
gap left by the passing of NRA.
The contract was made in February,
1936, between the Popular Priced
Dress Manufacturers' Group, Inc., on
the one side, and the International La
dies' Garment Workers' Union and the
Joint Board of the Dress and Waist
makers of New York. The two affil
iated firms were members of the em
ployers' union, and were bound by the
contract. One part of the contract
pledged the employers not to move
their shops to any place which can be
reached only by paying more than
a 5 cent fare.
"Strong Measures"" Needed
"The logic of the situation calls for
application of strong measures," Jus
tice McCook said. "With the end of
NRA appeared a new need for such
contracts as the one in suit.
"Without a remedy as wide as that
need, unscrupulous employers of la
bor will be tempted to play one com
munity off against another, unlawfully
depriving New York city of her busi
ness and her inhabitants of their live
Justice McCook attributed the "un
fortunate result" to a "head-on col
lision between a union conscious of
power and an employer with an un
enviable business record, an aggres
sive personality and a determination
to make a success this time at all
