Decided May 14, 1951

Syllabus

1. The Congress of Industrial Organizations (CIO) is a "national or international labor organization" within the meaning of § 9(h) of the National Labor Relations Act, as amended by the Labor Management Relations Act, and the National Labor Relations Board could not proceed against an employer at the instance of a union affiliated with CIO when the officers of CIO had not filed the non-Communist affidavits required by that section, although the affiliated union's own officers had filed such affidavits. Pp. 341 U. S. 323-325.

2. When a court of appeals is petitioned to decree enforcement of an order of the National Labor Relations Board requiring an employer to bargain with a union and the facts regarding compliance with § 9(h) are not in dispute, the employer is entitled to a judicial review of the legal question whether there has been compliance with § 9(h). Pp. 341 U. S. 325-326.

184 F.2d 98 affirmed.

The Court of Appeals denied enforcement of an order of the National Labor Relations Board requiring an employer to bargain with a union affiliated with the Congress of Industrial Organizations because the officers of the latter had not filed the non-Communist affidavits required by § 9(h) of the National Labor Relations Act, as amended by the Labor Management Relations Act, 61 Stat. 146, 29 U.S.C. (Supp. III) § 159(h), 184 F.2d 98. This Court granted certiorari. 340 U.S. 927. Affirmed, p. 341 U. S. 326.
