Fight on Labor Act
Pledged at Session
Of Chemical Workers
Some 113,000 unionized chemical
workers today were prepared to'
launch a fight to kill the Taft
Hartley Labor Act, after unani
mously agreeing upon this action
in the closing session of their an
nual convention here.
Members of the International
Chemical Workers’ Union, one of the
AFL’s strongest bodies, also urged
yesterday that the parent body join
with the CIO in an all-out campaign!
to eliminate the law.
Chemical Union President H. A.
Bradley of Akron, Ohio, in a closing
address last evening in the Annapo
lis Hotel, warned the 285 delegates
the Taft-Hartley Act leads the way
to dictatorship.
Sees Fight as Expensive.
Mr. Bradley declared “this a
Fascist bill” and said it was the same
type of vehicle used by Hitler and
Mussolini. He said union treasuries
may be drained by the demands of
fighting the act and the need for
expensive legal talent. He told the
convention he has information from
a private source that every Repub
lican candiate last year had to
pledge to the National Association of
Manufacturers to go along with
Republican leadership in Congress.
If that is true, he added, govern
ment of, for and by the people is
gone in the United States.
The convention adopted a resolu-;
tion to seek immediate repeal of
the Taft-Hartley Act after hearing'
it denounced by Walter Mason, per
sonal representative of William
Green, AFL president. He chal- j
lenged the contention the law was:
the fruit of “a mandate from the;
people" and asked the delegates to j
carry their views back home and
make them effective.
Suspension Upheld.
In another resolution, the con
vention upheld the union’s Execu
tive Committee in suspending for j
two years 12 members of a local in;
Joliet, 111., charged with a wildcat!
strike in violation of union rules.
Mr. Bradley pointed to this as an j
indication the Taft-Hartley - Act is!
not needed and workers can settle
their own disputes.
Resolutions adopted urged more
careful observance of union labels
in buying goods, called for expan
sion of union research to educate
and instruct the membership, sup
ported the Labor Department in
informing American workers on in-:
ternational problems, asked that
election day be made a national
holiday, advocated health clinics, i
urged a guaranteed minimum wage
related to adequate purchasing
power and asked for a low-cost
housing program.
