THE NORRIS-LA GUARDIA (ANTI-INJUNCTION)

ACT

Act of March 23, 1932, 47 Stat. 70; 62 Stat. 991 (1948); 63 Stat. 107

(1949) 29 U.S.C. 88 101-15; F.C.A. 29 88 101-15

Summary and Description The Anti-Injunction Act declares it to be a public policy that the worker shall have full freedom of association, self-organization, and designation of representatives of his own choosing to negotiate the terms and conditions of his employment, free from employer interference in these or other concerted activities for mutual aid or protection.

The act defines and limits the powers of the Federal courts to issue injunctions in labor disputes, in conformity with this policy.

YELLOW-DOG CONTRACTS

Employment contracts whereby a worker agrees not to join a union, or to resign if he is a union member (yellow-dog contracts), are declared contrary to public policy and unenforceable in Federal courts.

WHEN INJUNCTIONS MAY NOT BE ISSUED No Federal court may issue an injunction, temporary or permanent, in any case involving or growing out of a labor dispute, to prohibit any individual worker or group of workers acting in concert from doing any of the following acts, except as modified by the LaborManagement Relations Act.

1. Ceasing or refusing to work.
2. Joining or continuing membership in a union.

3. Aiding or refusing to aid financially or by other lawful means any person participating in or interested in a labor dispute.

4. Giving publicity to the existence of or the facts involved in any labor dispute whether by advertising, speaking, patrolling, or by any other method not involving fraud or violence.

5. Assembling peaceably to act or to organize to act in promotion of their interests in a labor dispute.

6. Advising or notifying any person of intent to do any of the above, agreeing or refusing to do any of the above, or inducing

others to do any of the above acts, without fraud or violence. The act defines a labor dispute as any dispute over terms and conditions of employment or matters of employee representation in collective bargaining, even though the persons involved are not in the relation of employer and employee.
