Virginia Elec. & Power Co. v. Labor Board, 319 U.S. 533 (1943)

Virginia Electric & Power Co. v. National Labor Relations Board

No. 709

�Argued May 6, 1943

Decided June 7, 1943

319 U.S. 533


1. In requiring the disestablishment of a company union, the National Labor Relations Board was authorized, by § 10(c) of the National Labor Relations Act, upon the facts it found in this case, supported by evidence, to order that the employer reimburse its employees in full for amounts which had been deducted from their wage and paid to that union as dues. P. 319 U. S. 539.

2. The Board's determination that reimbursement in full of the checked-off dues is necessary to "effectuate the policies of the Act" should stand in the absence of any showing that the order was a patent attempt to achieve ends other than can fairly be said to effectuate the policies of the Act. P. 319 U. S. 540.

3. The order is not to be regarded as adjudicating a right to damages or as imposing a penalty. P. 319 U. S. 543.

132 F.2d 390 affirmed.

Certiorari, 318 U.S. 752, to review an order of the National Labor Relations Board. The case was here before, and was remanded for a redetermination, 314 U. S. 469.
