Communications Workers v. Labor Board, 362 U.S. 479 (1960)

Communications Workers of America, AFL-CIO v.

National Labor Relations Board

No. 418

Argued April 18, 1960

Decided May 2, 1960

362 U.S. 479


The National Labor Relations Board found that, during the course of a strike, petitioner unions had violated § 8(b)(1)(A) of the National Labor Relations Act by coercing employees of a telephone company in the exercise of their right to refrain from or discontinue participation in the strike, and it entered an order requiring the unions to cease and desist from restraining or coercing employees of the telephone company "or any other employer" in the exercise of rights guaranteed in § 7 of the Act, though it had not found that the unions had engaged in violations against the employees of any employer other than the telephone company.

Held: the order is modified by striking therefrom the words "or any other employer," and, as so modified, the judgment of the Court of Appeals enforcing the order is affirmed. Pp. 362 U. S. 479-481.

266 F.2d 823 modified and affirmed.
