TUESDAY, MARCH 24, 1953

UNITED STATES SENATE,
COMMITTEE ON LABOR AND PUBLIC WELFARE,

Washington, D.C. The committee met at 10 a. m., pursuant to call, in room 318 of the Senate Office Building, Senator H. Alexander Smith (chairman) presiding.

Present: Senators Smith, Taft, Aiken, Ives, Purtell, Goldwater, Murray, Hill, Neely, Douglas, Lehman, and Kennedy.

The CHAIRMAN. The hearing will please come to order.

During the course of these hearings the following bills will be given careful consideration:

[S. 225, 83d Cong., 1st sess.) A BILL To amend the Labor Management Relations Act, 1947, so as to prevent interruptions to ocean transportation service between the United States and its Territories and possessions as a result of labor disputes Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, That section 206 of the Labor Management Relations Act, 1947, is amended by inserting after “safety," the following: "or whenever the President is notified by the Governor of any Territory or possession of the United States that a threatened or actual strike or lock-out, will if permitted to occur or to continue, deprive such Territory or possession of essential ocean transportation services and thereby imperil the health or safety of itspeople,”.

SEC. 2. Section 208 of such act is amended to read as follows:

"SEC. 208. (a) Upon receiving a report from a board of inquiry the President may direct the Attorney General to petition any district court of the United States having jurisdiction of the parties to enjoin such strike or lock-out or the continuing thereof, and if the court finds that such threatened or actual strike or lock-out

“(i) affects an entire industry or a substantial part thereof engaged in trade, commerce, transportation, transmission, or communication among the several States or with foreign nations, or engaged in the production of goods for commerce; and

“(ii) if permitted to occur or to continue, will imperil the national health

or safety; or if such threatened or actual strike is one with respect to which the President has received notification in accordance with section 206 from the Governor of a Territory or possession and the Court finds that such strike or lock-out

(i) deprives such Territory or possession of essential ocean transportation services; and

“(ii) if permitted to occur or to continue, will imperil the health or safety

of the people of such Territory or possession ; it shall have jurisdiction to enjoin any such strike or lock-out, or the continuing thereof, and to make such other orders as may be appropriate.”

SEC. 3. Section 209 (a) of such act is amended by inserting after "safety," the following: “or the health or safety of the people of a Territory or possession,”.
