Item # 697057

February 28, 1939


* NLRB v. Fansteel Metallurgical Corp.
* United States Supreme Court decision
* re. Sit down strikes - fired employees

The front page has a great banner headline: "SIT DOWN STRIKES ILLEGAL!" with subheads. Nice for display. Lengthy text continues inside with a few related photos. First report coverage on the NLRB v. Fansteel Metallurgic Corp. landmark United States Supreme Court decision.
Complete with 28 pages, this is the "rag edition" printed on very high quality newsprint meant for institutional holdings. In great condition as such, a few small binding holes at the spine.

wikipedia: National Labor Relations Board v. Fansteel Metallurgical Corporation, 306 U.S. 240 (1939),[1] is a US labor law case of the United States Supreme Court case in which the Court held that the National Labor Relations Board had no authority to order an employer to reinstate workers fired after a sit-down strike, even if the employer's illegal actions triggered that strike.
