A Manual for Trade Unionists

The labor injunction, with which the book deals, is America's distinctive contribution to the legal adjustment of industrial relations. The present book gives an account of the labor injunction in action, based on a detailed study of the rules of procedure which govern the granting of injunctions, the kind, of evidence upon which they are based, their actual scope and the procedure of their enforcement. The book gives also a history of the legislative efforts to define and limit the use of the injunction in labor disputes, examines the judicial application of such legislation, summarizes the present status of the injunction, and indicates the direction appropriate for future legislation.


The book is intended for laymen, employers, and trade unionists, as well as for lawyers, economists, and all engaged in public affairs.
