Utility Workers v. Consolidated Edison Co., 309 U.S. 261 (1940)
Amalgamated Utility Workers v. Consolidated Edison Co.
Argued January 31, 1940
Decided February 26, 1940
309 U.S. 261
Under the National Labor Relations Act, the authority to apply to the Circuit Court of Appeals to have an employer adjudged in contempt for failure to obey a decree enforcing an order of the National Labor Relations Board lies exclusively in the Board itself, acting as a public agency. A labor organization has no standing to make such an application in virtue of having filed the charges upon which the Board's proceedings were initiated. P. 309 U. S. 269.
106 F.2d 991 affirmed.
Certiorari, 308 U.S. 541, to review the denial of an application for a contempt order.
