Date in History : September 14, 1959

The Labor-Management Reporting and Disclosure Act of 1959, also

Taft-Hartley Act, including:

(*) definition of additional unfair labor practices;

(*) provisions allowing State labor relations agencies and courts to

assume jurisdiction over labor disputes the NLRB declined to

consider at the same time prohibiting the NLRB from broadening the

categories of cases it would not handle.
